A poem expressing how the rain can be a blessing to our lives.

Photo Copyright ©2005 Deborah Sandidge




I am a tiny raindrop
Resting inside a cloud
Today, I’ll fall from Heaven
And make my Father proud
I’ll join my friends and neighbors
To form a blessed shower
The profit from our labors
Will last from hour to hour.


Alone, I am a droplet
Unable to sustain
Much easier to forget
Than a slow, steady rain
But, when the day is over
My purpose will be seen
Upon the field of clover
And everywhere I’ve been.


I am a tiny raindrop
Resting inside a cloud
Today, I’ll fall from Heaven
And leave my darkened shroud
So soon, I will be earthbound
Where I’ll help to bestow
The beauty that I have found
To the grasslands, below.


My friends and I, together
Have one purpose in mind
To show you that the weather
Can benefit mankind
Each rainstorm brings a moment
When the world is revived
A time, filled with reflection
Upon tasks we’ve survived. 


Can one droplet make a difference?
I would have to say, no
Since my friends and I, together
Put on a brilliant show
I am a tiny raindrop
Inside a cloud of gray
But, soon, I’ll fall from Heaven
Where I’ll brighten your day.


I am, merely, a raindrop
No better than the dew
Yet, I have quite a mission
Before my time in through
My friends and I must show you
There’s no need to complain
Each shower, sent from Heaven
Is meant to ease your pain.

Rain although often cursed is also often prayed for, to nurture the earth and clease the soil so new life can sprout and grow. Wonderful reflection on the power of rain in this sparkling write Jill.

I sooo love this.

Yet I don't know if you have the same nursery rhymes, I was thinking


I'm a little teapot

Short and stout <----that's me!!!

Here is my handle

Here is my spout

When I get all steamed up

Hear me shout:

Tip me over

and pour me out!
