"Rain" by Robert Louis Stevenson which can be found in Sing A Song of Popcorn selected by Beatrice Schenk De Regniers and illustrated by Caldecott medal artists, is a short poem about where the rain falls. Make up words with your child to describe the sound of rain, include heavy rain, fast rain, light rain, and slow rain sounds.
A Kick in the Head: An Everyday Guide to Poetic Forms selected by Paul B. Janeczko and Chris Raschka includes "Spring Rain" by Buson, which is a haiku. After reading ask your child what we see of the person or people who are covered by an umbrella or raincoat with a hat?
As always, I hope you enjoy these recommendations. Feel free to share with credit to Words Reflected and Kim Bogren Owen on Facebook, your website, or in your newsletter. Please add your favorite spring poems in the comments!
