The Freedom Of A Puddle Pouncing!

whether it we pooch or playfriend... i firmly believe in splashing in puddles!
i don't really like to use an umbrella when it rains
i love storms
roaring winds
aren't rain boots fun to look at?
i think umbrellas are kinda cool
this morning as I was getting in my car for work at 6 am
a dad and his little boy (probably 18 months) were heading out to day care
the dad said "look puddles! want to jump in them?"
and he did. with joy, spirit, gusto, messily, dripping
and dad said "look, here's another one! here's a bigger one!"
now how cool is that!
Rain bashing, rain crashing,
In the puddles, children splashing,
Mother's tongue has started lashing,
Everyone is wet!
Rain slopping, rain stopping,
In the puddles, children hopping,
Mother's hands have started mopping,
Everyone, I bet!
Sun waking, sun breaking,
In the puddles, children quaking,
Mother's arms have started shaking,
Everyone, she'll net!
Sun applying, sun drying,
In the puddles, children crying,
Mother's breath is now a sighing,
Everyone's upset!
Sun gleaming, sun scheming,
In the puddles, children steaming!
Mother's smile, now is beaming,
Everyone's her pet!
