Tip-tip-tip, after a dreadfully long wait
The rain did ultimately fall
True indeed, the falling of rain was very late
But now the god played his role
And briefly, very briefly, the creatures on earth did dance
And the aliens from the outer world cast on us a glance
The aliens were furious and great were their jealousy
And thinking of the blue planet they felt drowsy.
Then all of sudden the rain ceased falling
In a day or two, we thought, once again it will rain
The sky shall sing its thunderous song and growl and roar
Blocked will be the railroad; and we shan’t travel by train
To save herself from rain my neighbor will close her door
Alas, the rainy season is almost coming to an end
And very brief was our joy
The aliens must have lured the rain away from our land
Start the engine of the ship, ahoy!
Tell the alien, oh darling, you see,
We have plenty of water in the Sea.

It’s fun to play with rhyme…in the rain…isn’t it?
It is, absolutely, it is. But you see, in my hurry, I made a mistake by not writing another line that could rhyme with the 1st line of the 3rd stanza.
Sometimes it’s a good idea to make a variation in a poem….it keeps it interesting, and not too mechanical….most good poets do that 🙂
Wow! that’s wonderful to know. Yes, I agree. Variation in a poem brings a new look to it, making it different and unique.
