Serenade Of The Rain

I love the gentle rains of spring
That fall so softly as they sing
A melody of sweet romance
That calls to me “Come out and dance”

So I will join the raindrops there
As they pirouette upon the air
Back and forth with them I’ll sway
As they dance an aerial ballet

The rain will keep a rhythmic beat
Upon the pavement soft and sweet
We’ll dance a step at nature’s ball
While the crystal waters softly fall

Then as the skies begin to clear
And the final dance is drawing near
I see the rainbow that’s been made
By the falling raindrops serenade

But I will hear again their call
When gentle rains begin to fall
‘Til then within my heart remains
The joy of dancing with the rains

Very nice, Stephen. Very soft, easy flowing and poetic. But then again, I find all your poetry very poetic. I do agree with Roger, that it would sound better with "Rain" instead of "Rains". But hey, you write it the way you want. It is still great.

Hi, Stephen, I think this poem is very melodic and it really flows, like Brian said, "like water," but I would not use, "So," in your second stanza. Sometimes, so, but, and "and" get in the way of the fluidity of a poem. In your first stanza, I would simple say, "A melody of sweet romance that calls me to come out and dance." I would not use quotation marks, it detracts from the statement. And lastly, I would try to use, "rain," as opposed to, "rains."
