Raindrops on Flowers

When the raindrops on the flowers
In summer early morning hours
Have moistened both petal and leaf
In suddenly sodden motif

Soon a kiss from heated sunlight
That will undoubtedly alight
Shall dazzle glistening dewdrops
As they linger on blossom tops

Then will the vegetation dance
Draped in ornamental romance
Within their green garden domains
On feeling gentle summer rains

‘Tis just the way of nature’s things
The joyousness renewal brings

 

Author Notes:

love to look at flowers after a summer rain shower.

This poem is a Sonnet. It has three quatrains with an aabb rhyme scheme followed by a closing rhyming couplet giving it the required 14 lines. This one is not ianmbic. I did it in tetrameter.
