As I look outside, the pitter-patter of the
rain beats against the window.
The fresh raindrops splatter against the sidewalk.
When I step outdoors, it smells of wet, earthen soil,
The sky is getting darker,
And heavy, almost as if the gray clouds are
weighing down the sky.
It's spring-time now, and as the snow melts away,
The rain replaces the sights and sounds of winter.
It's still raining outside, and I like that just the way it is.

It was raining one day, during class, and I just felt inspired.

I've had that same feel when it comes to rain. I've written a nineteen page poem that in no way or form compares to what you capture here. Good job mate.

Great poem! I liked your description of the rain, and how it looked as if the gray clouds "are weighing down the sky". I love rain as well :)
