The Rain Fell - Poem by Leslie Alexis
O Yes, the rain, it fell, it fell again!
And where it fell, trees shot and then it fell.
It fell some more, it fell on sea and shore.
It fell on rocks - they turned to mud. It rocked!
It rocked the boats upon the sea, suddenly,
It fell on me! Rivers, they fell. It was no shock,
It fell from twelve, to twelve o’clock. I played,
I danced, in rain; the rain that fell; upon
The sea and shore nonstop, it fell and fell!
The flowers drank; they drank, they drank by cups
Until they were fed up. They frowned, they stood,
As hard as wood, they cried no more. Assuredly
It continued to pour, on shore, on sea,
Flower and me. It rained, it rained, it rained!
