“The Rain Comes Down” (A Rondelet)

The rain comes down
And brings new life to my garden.
The rain comes down
And sweetens the air of my town.
Its drops inspire many men
And spawn magic worlds for children.
The rain comes down.

    The rain is magical and brings new life to the garden ~ Lovely work on the refrain and rhyming pattern too ~

  3. Eric Alagan says:

    Rain – or rather, water – life as we know it.

  4. Marya says:

    … and the grass gets taller and taller.
    Nicely done.

  5. Well in Miami the rain brings moskeeters the size of Buicks

  6. Mary says:

    This has a rhythmic and peaceful feel. The message works well with this form, as the repetition intensifies the rhythm of the rain.

  7. Rowan Taw says:

    Great rhythm and lovely use of the form.

  8. Tony Maude says:

    The repetition works really well here; it is somehow redolent of falling rain. Rain is fine – as long as it stops sometime. Thanks for joining in at dVerse, today.

  9. I really like this as it brings up the summer rain… and just as Tony says the pitter-patter of rain is really great with repetitions. 🙂
