Pitter Patter
Pitter, patter, pitter, patter
The heavy drops fall
Hitting the tin roof
My eyes are becoming heavy
As I curl under the blanket
Pitter, Patter, pitter, patter
I yawn and stretch
Like the fat cat
Settling in for a nap
My thoughts begin to drift
Across the vast ocean of my mind
Thoughts of the flowers
Stretching their roots
Wriggling worms
Spreading nutrients through the soil
Feeding the flowers, grass and trees
Pitter, patter, pitter, patter
The rain sounds off a soft cadence on the tin roof
Creating a beat
Pitter, patter, pitter, patter
I drift off to sleep with the sound of the rain hitting the tin roof
Pitter, patter, pitter, patter
Softly sings the rain on the tin roof
Pitter, patter, pitter, patter
