Cold Raindrops Can Hurt

by Kevin Rottweiler

cold raindrops can hurt

as they bounce off the roof

all the snowflakes take a glance

Mother Nature takes a break

as raindrops become ice

falling on cow backs

dripping on oxen tracks

bothering even the mice

seeking cheese near a dumpster

and the rooster crows

it is winter as rain becomes

ice and snow again

off studying poetry

in a little liberal arts college

of the midwest

never thought authoring

could be so affectionate

for an outdoor man

around cows and veterinarians

and dogs and lazy barn cats

but the rain can hurt

as it turns to ice

and it burns

when it hits you twice
