upon defining rain


upon defining rain ( niar gninifed nopu )

brother of drizzle
& the cousin of mizzle
the lover of mud

prince of the puddles
a present from the high seas
sky father lather

bane of the plains
the sound of cloudbursts spurting
& sputtering gutters

cloven hooven tunes
music in trench foot tempos
clopping on the roofs

wet from the welkin
symphonies in welly boots
for ghouls in cagoules

fodder for the bogs
from the kingdom of the frogs
the piss of the gods
