The Day Nature Sang A Love Song Poem by Ronald Doku

The Day Nature Sang A Love Song

Rating: 5.0

'Kokrookoo' was the rude awakening at dawn
From a strange rooster I never heard before
'Tweet Tweet' the little birds from outside chirped in
'Ooooo' I sighed, not another boring work day
'Boo Woo Woo' the neighbor forgot to chain Sly, his Pitbull
'Shhhhhhhh' I sneaked out the back door
To avoid waking my mom, and encountering the fierce Sly
'Huuuuuuu' I could hear the ghastly wind as i walked
'Kreee Kreee' I relished the sound of my feet crushing dried leaves
'Kree Kree.... Puff' Holy @#% I just stepped on dog poop
'Tap Tap' were the sound my feet made when I ran back home
'Don't forget to take an umbrella dear
I just heard there is gonna be a heavy down pour today'
My mom warned after I wore new shoes
'Tick Tock' I could hear the clock ticking
Oh my God I am going to miss my bus
'Buzz Buzz' a bee flew around a rose flower
A foreign looking lady sold at the bus stop
I stretched my hand to swat the fly
'Uno dollar' was what the lady said
She thought I wanted to buy the rose
And what she said was the only english she spoke
Reluctantly, I paid for the rose
Because the lady never understood any other thing I said
My bus had come, and I took it to work
The first person I saw at work was the lovely Diana
The only woman I loved aside from my mother
She smiled at me, and asked me this
'Oh what a lovely flower, did you buy it for me'
'Bang Bang' my heart began to beat
The lady of my dreams had just spoken to me
'Y-e-a, it is for you' I stammered
She smiled, took it, and walked away
Oh what a joyous a day!
That smile was priceless
My day was soon over, time to leave
And it was raining outside
Just like mama said would happen
Thank God I brought my umbrella
Just as I was about to leave
Diana caught up with me
She asked to join me
For she didnot bring anything to protect her
Together we walked and talked under my umbrella
A feeling so magical had swept over me
'Chiichiichii' the rain splashed to the ground
The first time ever I really listened to its beautiful sound
'Booom Booom' the sound of the powerful thunder followed
Blending perfectly with the sound of the rain
Nature indeed makes the perfect music
I realised I had much in common with the woman I loved
That night in the rain was the beginning of something beautiful
Love i found through nature's help
