It Rained Last Night


It rained last night at 4 a.m.

I was up and wandering round again

The rain made sounds up on the roof

I know because my dog went…

To the door and started barking.



You thought I was gonna say something else, huh?

(This poem is based on a true story.  Now I’m sleepy.)

  1. It rained last night here, also, literally. I have a steel roof so it is impossible to miss the staccato sound. However, my dog does not bark over rain, just when she sees coyotes and there are too many to chase off.
