Dripsy Dropsy

© by Leanne Guenther

Dripsy, dropsy
Pitter, patter
     Falling
          to the
               ground.

Fast then slow
Until it stops.
Oh what a welcome sound! 

 

play sound   play sound

Thoughts for discussing poetry with children:

The poem provides an example of a poet describing something without saying outright what it is about.

What do you think the poem is talking about?

What is the 'welcome sound'?  Different people can interpret poetry differently based on their own preferences or experiences.  Is the sound of the rain welcome?  Or is it the sound of the rain stopping that is welcome?
