Water Cycle Poem

Water cycle

 

Randy the raindrop lived in a cloud

the heat from the sun made him big, strong, and proud

he got bigger and bigger until one day,

Oh my!

He fell through the floor of his house in the sky!

 

Randy was scared,

then he noticed more raindrops falling,

"hey Randy, isnt this fun?" they were calling

Then onto a leaf with a splash Randy fell,

and what happened next is a strange thing to tell

 

Randy was made up of water you know,

a part of him went to help a tree grow.

The rest of him went into a puddle so round,

then the sun came out and shone on the ground.

 

The sun warmed Randy and he started to change,

he became water vapor, my isn't that strange?

Little drops of water, too tiny to see,

floated into the sky, yes that was Randy!

 

Randy's home once again was  a cloud in the sky,

he was a raindrop once more, but then by and by,

the sun made him bigger and bigger and then,

he fell through the floor of his house once again!
