The Rain Begins...

spring brings showers, out of the blue
startled legs scamper for cover
a good excuse for lovers to share umbrellas, embrace each other

finely sprinkles,fresh green shoots
caresses splendid,golden shows
leaves behind a parting gift
glorious rainbows.
summers cruel heat, stifling
leaves parched, cracked the ground
flowers hang their needy heads

fallen are scattered around
thunder rolls, sky darkens
clouds burst, rain dances beneath
nature drinks in greedily
breathes a sigh of relief
autumn rain chills the bones
swells the streams and rivers
clears the way, sows the seeds
of lofty life givers
muddy puddles appear,tempting
to booted children,lure them in
splish and splash! about laughing
mothers “tut!” but slyly grin
winter rain is ruthless
stinging cold wet faces
drives people to seek out warmth
dream of exotic places
dripping red noses,sniffle
icy blasts turn rain to stone
bouncing, the hail whitens
shivering, legs hurry home
