There is no way one can explain

Why children love to splash in rain

Or why the mud is so much fun

In which to slide upon one’s bun.

There’s no accounting for the joy

That comes to every girl or boy

To screech as loudly as they may

To frighten every bug away.

Or why each babe will play with you

The game grownups call “peekaboo”

And truly I do not know why

They all believe that angels fly !

    I appreciate rhyming poetry as that’s the way I think also. I’ve tried to do non-rhyming poems but they just don’t work for me.

  2. Frankly it may not be the rhyme, but the metre and the inflection, the repetition of the sound, almost musical ! Or as the critic would say, the sing-song, hahahaha ! Personally, I revel in it ! However there is one, Adelaide Crapsey whom I respect, I know nothing of her work, but my favorite, “On Seeing Weather Beaten Trees”, I love ! “Is it as plainly in our living shown by slant and twist which way the wind has blown ?” Notice, sing-song ? Thanx, Claire B.
