My brother, sister and I love rainy days. We enjoy playing in the rain very
much. There is a very shallow stream near our house. Each time it rains, we
go there to sail our paper boats and watch them being swept away. The rain
makes the water in the stream deeper and it is exciting to watch the swift
currents flow over the stones, carrying away leaves, grass and other refuse
from our garden. We watch intently as our paper boats are
tossed about in the water. They then
sail swiftly down the stream and we often wonder where they finally end up.
During the rain, we also love to sit and watch the
puddles of water in our garden. As pools of water are formed,
our ducks start splashing about in them, quacking noisily.
Sometimes, we run out in the rain, throw stones into the puddles of water
and watch the ripples of water growing
bigger and bigger. The water looks like rings of silver as the shining
raindrops fall onto its surface.
I think the rain is better than the burning heat of the sun. Once in a
while, we enjoy ourselves playing ball games in the rain. It is fun,
provided we do not catch a cold or a chill. I like playing in the rain when
there is no thunder or lightning.
