Clitter, clatter, how they patter
raindrops from the sky!
They make music on the roof,
and hasten passers by!

Tiny teardrops from the Gods,
they make the flowers grow,
and green the grass in silent meadows,
and make the rivers flow.

Little missiles from the clouds
sail downwards through the air,
and cause a panic to the picnics,
and muss the ladies hair!

Little treasures be they all,
they make the breezes fair,
and freshen landscapes one and all
and help the crops to bear.

They set the ducks to quacking,
and lovers pause and sigh,
mischievous little raindrops
falling from the sky!

So, here's an ode to raindrops
that soothe a thirsty land,
they flash like tiny diamonds,
and nourish beast and man.

  When it rains around my town, it frightens the dogs. The value of a raindrop - as you celebrate here - is like a diamond ideed!

Only a short comment; I gotta post a post.

  Hello there Ron. Thanks so much for your uplifting comments. I did want to read this poem after you saying that you wrote it. It is beautiful and gives me such a wonderful feeling. I LOVE rain. Each raindrop is a true treasure like you say.

Thanks for sharing!!

  This is so cute! I absolutely adore how you word everything, it all fits in precisely where it should. Every stanza actually gives true information as well as a flowery sound (if that makes sense). You did a magnificent job!

(and muss the ladies hair! haha, so original. I love it)

I Believe I have told you before I have always had a Love Affair with the rain
The rain to me washes away all of ones sins and brings new life and a new begining not only to man but also all Living Creatures
Its the most Precious gift of all from The Lord
Beautifully Said as always
God Bless

  ah, this is so well done. Perfect! It reminds me of some of Robert Louis Stevenson's poetry, which I consider high praise, believe me. Just an excellent poem no matter how you slice it! bravo... bravo... bravo...

   I'm always a fan of a good nature poem and this is no exception - my favourite is the third stanza

"Little missiles from the clouds
sail downwards through the air,
and cause a panic to the picnics,
and muss the ladies hair!"

And the whole poem is perfect right about now as it is currently having a nice summer rain outside (*gasp* rain in England?? never !!). xx

love n luck

  Excellent! This poem makes every raindrop seem like something wonderful and special. Usually when people think about rain they think of gray clouds and days when you sigh and stay indoors. Your poem brings out the good side of rain. And I especially like your beginning. One can almost hear raindrops when one reads the first line. This write made me smile :-)

Keep up the good work, Ron!!

  I love songs and poems about rain. It makes me think of a song
"I believe that every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows"
and "Raindrops falling, raindrops from the eye.
Pitter patter, fall from a joyful eye"

Great Job! You have painted such a beautiful picture in my mind :)

  What a delightful look at our friend (most of the time), the rain! With rain expected here the next couple days, your poem seems especially pleasing. The fields, lawns, and gardens will certainly say, "Thank you!" Enjoyed, :-) Sharon
