Dripping drab and drizzle,
Wash the gauzy gloom,
Rattle, rattan roof top,
Monsoon, Monsoon, Monsoon

Whispered water colours,
Soak up the stars and moon,
Splashes through eyelashes,
Monsoon, Monsoon, Monsoon

Grabbing grubby grasses,
Paths are puddles soon,
Greedy growing growling,
Monsoon, Monsoon, Monsoon

Dipping dashing dizzy,
Percussion in my room,
Faster flowing falling,
Monsoon, Monsoon, Monsoon

It's almost a song! Splashes through eyelashes is feelable like a Hopkins line. I liked the rythym generated by the alternation between rhyming lines and aliterative ones. Enjoyed this very much in both tone and style!

Also, you should check Roger's new poem btw (by the way).

Just the weather I think, Sky like a grey curtain, the word Monsoon is suggestive of fairy tales and poetry, but all we have is pouring, spitting, and raining.
