Mercurial rain

Tippity toe, tippity toe
bringing forth joy as well as woe
moody, coy and capricious
seldom are you judicious
drowning castle or bleak hut
to your awry tune you strut
tippity toe, tippity toe
bringing forth joy as well as woe!

Tippity toe, tippity toe
bringing forth joy as well as woe
why do you show your wrath thus
can’t you pour without a fuss
sunburned grass and withered trees
sultry weather and no breeze
tippity toe, tippity toe
bringing forth joy as well as woe!

Written for dVerse MTB. Today’s host, Grace, says: Post a poem following the Octelle poetry form.

I have written two Octelle.

Rain song

Rains came gushing, hearing my plea
I hop, I skip, I jump in glee
confines of walls, I quickly flee
Oh to be free, oh to be free!

umbrellas, raincoats make me glum
puddles, paper boats here I come
snivels and sneezes spoil my fun
give me some rum, give me some rum!

I snuggle under the warm sheet
in your arms, close to your heart beat
listening to the rain’s song sweet
feeling complete, feeling complete.

Today’s verse is in monotetra form for Grace’s challenge at dVerse.
