One Little Raindrop

 

One little raindrop

Arrives on my nose

Dangles a moment

Then splashes my toes

 

Slides down my pinkie

Lands on the grass

Washes a blade so

It glimmers like glass

 

One little raindrop

Joins with its mates

A cackling creek

That skitters and skates

 

On through the forests

And meadows it snakes

Merges with rivers

That pour into lakes

 

One little raindrop

Drawn out to sea

Plays with the dolphins

A long way from me

 

Out comes the sunshine

Blazing and high

Hauls up that raindrop

Far into the sky

 

One little raindrop

Now it’s a cloud

Here is the thunder

Looming and loud

 

Quick! Run for shelter

Before the storm blows

As one little raindrop

Arrives on my nose

  1. I felt your poem ably fulfilled the significant challenge you set yourself, Sharon: consistent rhymes, accessible vocabulary, logical development and a fitting conclusion. Well done!
