Rain Song

Rat a tat tat.
Rat a tat tat

Watch rain drops
get caught
in a spider’s web,

as the clouds
make today’s
sound.

Rat a tat tat
Rat a tat tat


Note: Just a little musing from the balcony the other day.
Winston and I stood amazed in the drizzle.
Watching a spider web catch rain drops.
And suddenly we were singing.

The original version had the verse:

Then the digger
smashed
boom boom clang
and swished away the song
that the sweet rain sang.

Boom Boom Clang
Boom Boom Clang

We had gone out to observe
the building next door being demolished.
But, the spider's web captured our hearts more

and since, we've only sung the first verse....
over and over and over
for it is winter in London after all.
