The rain falls thickly through the windowpane- Poem

The rain falls thickly through the windowpane,
the forecast true to word, we rushed outside;
We start to sink knee deep in puddles’ chains.

We tried to wait it out in hopeless vain,
but young and free, it was too long to bide.
The rain falls thickly through the windowpane.

A muttered curse drops down the rusty drain
and drowns, one voice against the rising tide.
We start to sink knee deep in puddles’ chains.

We tried to brace the storm with cape and cane,
but Nature’s will is old and firm and wide.
The rain falls thickly through the windowpane.
Cold children with red noses and cheeks stained,
sit still in silence, watching the riptide.
We start to sink knee deep in puddles’ chains.

Drop, drop goes raindrops, driving us insane;
off one beat and our lives are turned like tides.
The rain falls thickly through the windowpane.
We start to sink knee deep in puddles’ chains.
