How rich is a drop of rain


How rich is a drop of rain, or just a word  
I am going to follow its journey, in just words 
For just a drop, how rich is its worth 


It starts on impact with a bounce on leaf  
A trickle here, a trickle there 
A trickle, a trickle gravitating everywhere 


Slowly in the middle to forms of nectar 
The birds and bees do feed on trickles  
Pollen formed from a trickle, a trickle 


A trickle bounce a' bounce, a trickle drop of rain 
To the earth it falls, to the land sipping through  
To the roots, where it reaches, with riches to feed 


And the tree that stands to benefit, blossoms bright 
Green shoots of leaves to pronounce its health
And for its wealth, a harvest of fruits, and then some 


And then some, how rich is  drop of rain, I ask, 
Forget not I drank a glass of a trickle, a trickle  
The last of it, gave rivers for the fish to swim, the sea 


The last of it, went back up, like wisdom gained  
Into the clouds to rain again, showers to rain  
Rain is a drop, a trickle, a trickle another day
