POEM|The Rain 

The clouds are shifting
moving and forming
it’s going to rain
flow and pour

I like the rain
it’s beautiful and exciting
I like it’s sound
it’s musical and scary

Mum says we have to stay indoors
it’s wet and cold
sitting by the window
waiting and watching

I love the rain
it’s special and natural
raincoats and rain boots
daytime or night time

I like to play in the rain
running and dancing
it’s fun a lot
till I get caught 

The water from the rain
is refreshing and pure
the plants are fed
the earth is happy

I love the rain
and all it brings
there’s nothing compared
to it’s wonder and existence
