Try it on Tuesday - Peotry in motion!

You'll have guessed by now how much inspiration for my crafting I get from poetry, so this challenge is right up my street and I hope it attracts you too.  This tuesday at TioT we'd love you to make a creation inspired by a poem. That could be a nursery rhyme, song lyrics or a poem you remember from school days. No restrictions on the format this week as long as it is inspired by verse.

I'm still in childhood mode and have chosen a poem from A child's garden of verse which used to amuse me with it's simplicity. Can you guess what this is?

Yep it's one of these and if you look carefully you might be able to make out the poem. Click on the pic for a closer look.

If you have difficulty with that, here's the poem
The rain is raining all around
It falls on field and tree
It rains on unbrellas here
and on the ships at sea.

Neat isn't it?

I hope you're inspired to give it a go, we have such a wealth of literature out there and such wonderfully descriptive verse, you cant fail to find something that fits a stamp you love.
Have fun

I've been asked by a few people how I did the raindrops.  The front of the ATC is acetate and the raindropsare on the back of that. They are made by placing a round bead of glossy accents on the back of the acetate which is then pulled into a drop shape by placing the point of a pin in the middle of the drop and pulling it upwards through the glossy accents. Simples!
