Rain

One million feet are pattering

     Upon my window pane.

 One million drops are chattering:

      “Look out!  Here comes the rain!”

 

One million feet come clattering

      On dark streets, cold and bare.

One million drops are splattering

     You, me and everywhere.

 

One million feet are scattering

      One million drops of rain.

 One million raindrops offering

       Life to the world again.

JOSIE'S POEMS

This was one of my early poems but it was included, with many others, in my book: 'Josie's Poems - NATURE POEMS' which was published in 2010 by AMS Educational Ltd, Leeds.  Children and teachers across my region of West Yorkshire chose it.  I hope you like it also.  Josie
