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.
