Rainy Day Water Play
Lauren McBride


soaking drenching downpour dripping
children dancing splashing slipping
laughing playing creekside wading
leafy boatlets floating fading
water rushing pooling gushing
gurgles burbles voices hushing
mindful magic moment keeping
evening nighttime bedtime sleeping
