Rain

Monsoon is near
Corn on the cob is here
Rabbits and hedgehogs burrow
Where do homeless children go

Kitty curls on the rug
In my hand is a mug
Ponchos and sweaters us warm to keep
Where do homeless children sleep

  5. Wow...I'm feeling guilty just having this laptop, for not doing something. Words rarely come to life in this way for me; you've given them flesh, bone and spirit...wow

  6. Thank you antye504. We should do something, shouldn't we? Or else they will grow up to harass our children.
