As flowers catch the falling rain
Readers catch everything to gain
For knowledge is the corner-stone of lore
And wisdom pushes the waves ashore
Words scatter out and fall into books
As mountain showers run into brooks
Inquisitive readers catch what has fallen
When the bearer of wisdom comes calling
Readers have many words to say
Speaking about what comes their way
Writers sort them out in a compelling story
As intelligence moves ahead in full glory
An ode to readers for what they know
Words upon words to see them grow
