written by me at 8 years old around 1945.  Printed in Philadelphia Evening Bulletin

To me rain,
Is a pitter patter on the window pain.

"But to me"
One man said,
"It means a nasty cold in the head."

(I guess I just was born a bad poet with a attitude.)
By Miriam McCue writer of bad and even worse poetry.

    "Born a bad poet?" I guess not. Your rain poem is how all good poets start out - just a few meaningful lines. Of course, if you want to write bad poetry, that's easy to do, but that 8 year old sounds to me like a good poet in the making. Love, daver
