JR (1943 / USA)

Weather

Raindrops race towards an earthly trip
forming puddles for feet to slip
Snow's slow flutter abstains from sound
Yet, hail’s furry on eardrums pound
A light mist enlivens an onerous face
Where as a dreary fog veils an unseen place
A gentle breeze speaks softly a dulcet sound
But, tornadoes twist allusions of firm ground
Whether we’re in from the weather or whether we're out
Indeed, weather gives us an in to talk about

this is gorgeous! You manage to weave sound in between the descriptions of different weather patterns, which gives the poem it's own particular beat.
