TITLE: A Poetic wave of a Rain Drop

Oh glittery rain drop whose abode is the Cloud,
You are sometimes loud and end up in a big crowd
You lose your grip; you slip and drip
When kids with humps bump and jump.

You roll like a ball when you curl like a swirl
You are shy like a girl and hide in a bowl
You look like a pearl and hook like a mole
You look like a doll as you stroll and cajole.

You pop like a drop; you sob like you are robbed
You act like Pope when canít be tied by a rope
You look like a string that flies without a wing
You sing like a king and you swing like a ring.

You are the crown of the Sky but brown on the Earth
You drown at our groan but never prone to a frown.
Your birth is our mirth; your dearth is our death
You flirt when we perk; but never bark at our jerk.

You are white as the cow that helps with the plough
You move with a flow; you go with a glow
You fly like a dove and always cause love
You blow like youíre bored; you row like an oar.

You seem to be fun when you run with the Sun
With your tons of rain we have won our grains
You hide like a bride and you glide so wide
You wipe like a broom; you shine like a groom.

hmmm, a tribute to a raindrop. Work on measures - a little meter counting would help; there is nothing wrong with a stanza of eight lines or more.

The poem seems to be kind of jumpy although you had some great discriptions. The use of the word "You" so much was disturbing to the peice--I think myself would be careful with that. Nice poem though, good thoughts. Keep writing! God bless ya, littlelight

Lots of fun rhyming here that children would especially enjoy.
