A Worth Nite

Poem By Binod Bastola

When I scurry about on a rainy day
Acting annoyed at the rain
I sometimes remember a time far away
When I viewed raindrops with no disdain

I think of a time when I was quite young
And my brother and I would go out
With ball cap and sandals and raincoat that hung
Down to our feet all about

We delighted in plowing through puddle and pond
Formed by a strong passing storm
We discovered indeed we were equally fond
Of the air which seemed fragrant and warm

After prancing about back to mom we would go
All excited from our recent quest
Then quick to the tub with her two boys in tow
To get clean at our mother's behest

So today as I stand in my suit and dress shoes
Looking out as the raindrops are falling
I remember those days when I never withdrew
From the raindrops when they came a calling

i like it so far, but i had trouble reading the following line appropriately UNTIL i decided to read it as though a comma is/was after the word about. After prancing about back to mom we would go ..and here: Then quick to the tub with her two boys in tow..............i suggest putting she'd go after quick [or quickly] i enjoyed the story and rhyming and, especially, the last stanza. to MyPoemList. bri ;)

My Imagination

Lethal, she is with those
Pretty gorgeous, beauty simple,
Amber of shyness she wore
Flowers inferior with her aroma

That's undoubtedly real toil to find
