I wrote this over a year ago for my creative writing class; we had to write a poem about the weather. I thought about a conversation from a Little House on the Prairie episode, "The Lord is My Shepherd: Part Two" and wrote my poem about that. I put -.-.- to separate stanzas because you can't double-space on this Website.

This rainfall is

both a blessing

and a curse.


The angels in Heaven

look down at us

and are saddened

by all the evil they see.

Earth is really messed up.

They start to cry,

hoping their melancholy tears

will wash away cruelty,

purge the world of problems,

like the Great Flood.


Plants and animals

live on the angels' tears.

Their sadness becomes

our sustenance.


This is an example

of how bad things

can cause good things.
