Rain

Written by: Phyllis Babcock

The rain came dripping downward
Soaking me little by little
Wet seeped in and the skin chilled
goosebumps formed upon my arms
The hair resembled a drowned animal
wet, tangled a tumbling mane
Clothes hung like a second skin
The shoes wet and sloppy
squeaking as you took each step
The rain came dripping downward
Time to get out of the rain.
