One Little Raindrop


Australian Children’s Poetry website recently published my poem One Little Raindrop¬† which I wrote one very wet weekend. Gazing out the window, I wondered where all the water overflowing the gutters and pooling at the bottom of the garden could possibly go.

Of course, I know about the water cycle, but wanted a fun way to introduce the idea to children. I enjoyed playing with the language to mimic the sounds of water.

Hope you enjoy it.
