Rain Poems

                            

     Yesterday, March 13th, it was really  raining very hard.  So,  I asked the children to write some rain poems in their journals.  This is the result!!  

     I still am so impressed with how the whole class took to writing poetry this year.

If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain,

I would look shiny and silvery

Drop to the ground.

I would drop down shining,

Like a rainbow,

Playing on an umbrella

Tapping on the windowpane.

I make beautiful music.

If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain

I would make puddles everywhere.

I would drop from the sky,

Splatter on a windowpane.

If I were the rain,

I'd shimmer

As brightly as a star.

 Wonderful Rain

Today it's raining.

The drops of rain

Glimmer out of my window.

I hear the rain

Pitter, patter on the roof.

I love to watch the rain fall

From the sky.

I love the rain.

If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain

I would let silver raindrops

Fall down.

There would be a rainbow.

Then I'd come back

To give the flowers water.

 If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain,

I would drop so lightly.

But, when I am mad,

I'll drop hard!

When I am sad,

I won't drop at all.

When it's cold,

I'll turn into snow.

If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain,

Falling on somebody's head,

I would fall so lightly

They wouldn't even feel me.

That's what I would do

If I were rain!

 If I Were The Rain

 If I were the rain

I would not be dry-

I'd be wet.

Rain is blue

And so are you

When you cry.

Raindrops come falling from your eye.

It could rain anytime

And anywhere.

By: Tyler

If I Were a Raindrop

Raindrops, raindrops

Falling on my window.

That's why my sister might be scared.

Thunder all around us.

Then the biggest thing of all...

Lightning-

Lastly, the sun shines!

By: Alex

 If I Were Raindrops

If I were raindrops

And I was mad

I would make a dark rain in the sky.

If I was sad

My tears would be

The April showers

Sprinkling on the ground.

And if I was furious

I'd make a thunderstorm

Over a town.

By: Jenna

If I Were The Rain

I would twinkle down,

Down onto the ground.

If I were the rain

I would make sure

That all the raindrops

Fall on my cousin whose a brat!

If I were the rain

I would invite my friend over.

His name would be...

Thunder.

We could play soccer.

When we scored a goal,

Lightning bolts would

Shoot out from the sky.

If I were the rain ...

I'd greet Mrs. Stein

Everyday.

By: Erik

 Rain

Today the rain

Drops upon the window,

Tap, tap, tap.

It falls all over,

Clop, clop, clop.

It's all mushy on the grass.

Squish, squish, squish.

I cry as the rain falls,

Boo hoo, boo hoo.

I feel just plain blue.

By: Kerri

If I Were Thunder and Lightning

If I were were thunder and lightning

I would roam around the world

Making storms

Feeling mighty

Standing proud

As an eight year old boy.

If I were the thunder and lightning

I'd give my teacher a nice

Bolting hug-

BOOM!

By: Andrew

 If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain

I would dance on cars and roads.

If I were the rain

I would think where I should hide.

If I were the rain

I would make people laugh.

If I were the rain

I would make people happy

Not sad.

By: McKenzi

I am the rain.

Wet and cold.

Always helping flowers grow.

Silver, and white drops

Landing on the earth

I am the wet and wild rain.

If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain

I would fall from the sky.

Into a river

That would give me a ride.

To the places I want to go

Like...

Playing  in puddles,

Splashing,

Falling on the grass

And making puddles.

That's what I would do!

By: Marissa

If I Were The Rain

If I were the raindrops

I would turn me off

Turn me off,

That's what I would do.

If I were the rain

I would also turn off the

Sprinkler

That falls from the sky.

By: Julie

 If I Were Raindrops

If I were raindrops...

I would fall and give kisses 

To the world.

Give coolness to the poor.

Cool others who are hot.

I'm clear,

I'm caring,

And I love it when you're happy!

When it's cloudy

I have fun

And yes, you know...

I am coming.

Sun

If I were the sun

I could shine everyday.

If I was the sun

I could shine

Play

And come out and wake

All the robins up

And bring the children out

I want to stay.

 If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain

I wouldn't have friends.

Everyone would be too busy

Yelling

Rain, rain

Go away

Come back 

Another day.

If I were the rain

I'd make every raindrop

Fall on my cousin.

By: Maria

 

If I Were Rain

If I were rain,

I would make puddles

For children to play in.

I would give the flowers

Some water.

The grass would turn green.

I am the rain.

By:  Chris

 

If I Were Rain 

I am blue

I pour a lot

My name is rain.

I come from clouds

High up in the sky.

Now, you know

My name is right for me.

By: Dan

 

If I Were The Rain

If I were the rain

I would drop fast

I would make a loud sound.

Everything would be wet.

If I were the sun

I would  dry out

Everything that the rain did.
