Children Smashing Puddles

“I’m singing in the rain,
just singing in the rain;
What a wonderful feeling,
I’m happy again.”
Arthur Freed

Children Smashing Puddles

Rain is rare in California
The sky is rarely cloudy
Why is rain so rare in California?
Because of Climate Warming

Before the rain begins to pour
The cumulus clouds appear
Like floating pieces of cotton
Or like rounded white towers of fear

The day after rain is a beautiful sight
The mountains and hills
Are filled with tall green grass
And scattered with small orange poppies

But, the most spectacular sight
I love to see after all the rain
Are all the little children
Smashing little puddles from the rain

P.S. Today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. He would have been 111 years old. I dedicate this poem to my hero, Dr. Seuss.

For the last eighteen years, Dr. Seuss’s birthday has been celebrated with the annual “Read Across America Day”, an event sponsored by the National Education Association in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises. Millions of students participate in one of the nation’s largest reading observance.

Thanks to Dr Seuss, millions of children around the world learned to read and love to write. You can count me as one of his faithful followers even to this day.

Shine On

  1. Lovely! I learned a few things about Dr. Seuss! I must admit I got to know about Dr. Seuss later in life, but I was exposed to the Brothers Grimm much earlier. I’m fortunate to have been born and raised on a island with lots of rain (even that is changing now as well), and I’ve always loved the rain.
