I saw the sidewalk catch the measles
When the rain came down today.
It started with a little blotching--
Quickly spread to heavy splotching,
Then as I continued watching
The rain-rash slowly dried away.

from The Sky is Full of Song selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins, illustrated by Dirk Zimmer, 1983, Harper & Row
