Who Loves the Rain?

It’s been so long since we’ve had some and I miss it so!   Maybe if we think rainy thoughts and read rainy poems and books, some will come again!

The Water Cycle

When I was young, I used to think,
That water came from the kitchen sink.
But now I'm older, and I know,
That water comes from rain and snow.
It stays there, waiting in the sky,
In clouds above our world so high.
And when it falls, it flows along,
And splashes out a watery song,
As each raindrop is joined by more
And rushes to the ocean shore,
Or to a lake, a brook, a stream,
From which it rises, just like steam.
But while it's down here what do you think?
Some DOES go to the kitchen sink!

- Helen H. Moore (1921-2005).

And some “rainy books” you might enjoy:
