A poem about rain

Posted by campbelldb on Tuesday, June 23, 2009

I wanted to share a poem I wrote recently while listening to a summer rainfall. Constructive criticisms and donations are gladly accepted! 

Rain is one fine maestro,
even before taking the stage
its cloudy score knocks at the door
like a musical invitation
to listen, yes, L-I-S-T-E-N
as raindrops perform an allegro
melody upon the roof, which stills,
for a moment, the noise in our
jackhammer minds and quenches
the parched riverbed of today

Nice Poem! 

I wonder how it would go with some tinkling banjo backup music?

Ever listen closely to Monroe, The Old, Old House? One killer line: "When the leaves begin to fall in autumn and the rain starts to drip from the trees..."

Next time it rains I'll take a few extra moments to really listen thanks to your poem.
