It's Still April! Expect Showers

Rain: A Natural and Cultural History
by Cynthia Barnett

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring!
It's April and it's showering, thundering, lightening!
Nightwind splatters drops against the door frightening
The cats curled up close.
The gutters fail and the corners flood
Tulips and pansies awaiting May.





Is this a poem?  Who can say?  For something that was floating (in rainwater) in my head, it is the best poetry to come out in a long time.  As Susan Porter says, that's my perspective.
