A child holds one end of a string
the other end is tied to a pull toy
the wheels of the pull toy roll on the grass
the grass is rooted to the earth
the earth touches the waters of the sea
the sunlight warms the water
the water rises and forms into a cloud
the cloud breaks
the rain falls
on the child holding a string.

poem by Fred Cogswell
