Of rainy poetry and stories to be told

Hi Readers!
It's raining here, yay! And so I give you a poem (in a loose definition of the word poem) about rain!

A Rainy Winter's Day by Jemma
Rain falls from the sky, mist rolls over the hills
rain drops sparkle on the bushes and everything is a brilliant green
miniature rivers run lazily across the ground,
and a little brown dog shakes himself vigorously.
The bare branches of the ornamental pear are laden with drops,
diamonds in the mist.

What do you think? It was kind of fun to compose - especially since I'm inside and cosy - not outside and wet like my dog, Jack.
In this post I would like to share a bit about some stories I'm writing. On the subject of rain, here is a snippet of an un-named story.

"Rain rain, have you seen my beloved?",The lover called to the rain,
"Not us, not us" the rain whispered back, "try the north wind, maybe he will have seen your beloved". And the rain pattered away on gentle feet.

I am writing a LOT of stories at the moment. A sleeping beauty retelling, a tale of a lover's search for her beloved, a Cinderella retelling and The Wacky Adventures of Septyc Hors.
The main one is Septyc Hors, it is about an evil henchman call Septyc Hors. A rather unsuccessful evil henchman.

Bye Readers! Thank you for reading!

Series Review - How To Train Your Dragon

Hi Readers!

Today I am going to review the How To Train Your Dragon series by Cressida Cowell.

I read the books to my little sister (8) and she loved it!
They're very fun and suitable for about ages 6-120.
Hiccup, Fishlegs, Camicazi and all the rest of the characters are well written and easy to relate to. The plot was also great - one of my favorite things about the series in fact.
Some other things I enjoyed were; Dragonese - the language of dragons and the illustrations.
On the whole, How To Train Your Dragon gets a 5 star review from me.
