June 29, 2015


Rain drops.
Rain pounds.
Rain jumps
up from the ground.

Rain falls.
Rain roars.
From house gutters
rain pours.

Rain splashes.
Rain drips.
Rain feels cool
on my lips.

  Yesterday when the rain did finally come, it was in big heavy drops.  The rain pounded into the earth.  It made the water in the swimming pool splash up high.  As I watched the water closely, I could see it bouncing up three feet high from the hard pavement. We get rain so seldom in Tucson that when it does happen, children like to go out and feel the rain.
  What is your favorite kind of weather?  Can you write your own weather poem today?  Have fun with your writing.

In sunny weather or rain, a children's poem can make for a better day.


  1. Joy, did you go out and feel the rain or just imagine what it would be like?

    1. I went out and got wet. It felt great.

  2. I love this poem and am soooooo jealous that you got some rain. It's dry as Death Valley here.

    1. I'll wish for rain for you, Rosi. I'll have my weather fairies sprinkle rain drops in your direction.
