The Water Cycle

the water cycle
Science in a Nutshell Books

One drop falls
From leaf
To leaf it falls
To the ground
And into a stream
Becoming a river
Rushing, widening, calming
And opening finally into the ocean
Where it becomes steam and returns to the air as clouds
Who are blown towards land again
Showering hills and mountains, raining
Drop by drop.
