It Was Last Night's Rain

It was last night's rain that made these daffodils fall splat.

and brought the slug that ate into the heart

while the others were turned away.

It was last night's rain that kissed this hellebore's faces

beat on the backs of this hellebore's heads

and left these hellebore leaves cuddled

while these ones huddled.

It was last night's rain that made this trillium lose her pollen

and this trillium keep her hat.


It was last night's rain that made this violet so shy

and this sedum sparkle

though this red currant cried

to see fungi town crumble.

Here's what remains of last night's rain.
