Nourishment - Poem 14

Today's poem, in honor of poetry month, was inspired by the image of a happy child in the rain on Bud the Teacher's blog. 


“Into every life a little rain must fall”
Declared with a dour expression
By those who have forgotten
Simpler days

Stomping – this way and that –
Which gives the biggest splash?

Squishy galoshes
Head tilted back to catch
A drop on my tongue

Dance in the drizzle
Prance in the puddles
Caper in the cloudburst

Questing for rainbows?
No! Reveling in the raindrops

Secure in the knowledge
Of tomato soup and
Gooey grilled cheese
To drive away the chills
