One Big Rain: Poems for Every Season Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rita Gray has compiled twenty poems about precipitation, each written by well-known poets such as Kyoshi, Eve Merriam, Lilian Moore, and Carl Sandburg. Divided into poems written about rain within each of the four seasons, this compilation offers the reader a chance to revel in the beauty of precipitation and the poetry it inspires. The variety of poems opens the door for discussion of poetic styles, while Ryan O'Rourke's playful yet sophisticated illustrations will appeal to readers of all ages.

Synopsis:

The Mist and All

—Dixie Willson

I like the fall,

The mist and all.

I like the night owls

Lonely call—

And wailing sound

Of wind around.

I like the gray

November day,

And bare, dead boughs

That coldly sway

Against my pane.

I like the rain.

I like to sit

And laugh at it—

And tend

My cozy fire a bit.

I like the fall—

The mist and all.
