tears like rain

 Did we weep when winter met its icy death,
or mourn when autumn had its fall, but when the 
summer came with sunny days and  then  it died 
our tears fell like rain

    Joseph, I love this one and you almost have the meter down perfect. But in lines two and four, for me your initial words are beginning with unstressed instead of stressed syllables. Your words are awesome.

    thank you so much Andrea....I find it very stressful to figure out the stress or unstress of these syllables...
