Keep 'em coming - great fun!

But the first line of the challenge is "As the Spring rains fall", not "As the
Spring rain falls"

The original haiku goes like this:

As the Spring rains fall,
Soaking in them, on the roof,
Is a child's rag ball.

The imagery is so vivid that I will never forget it. A good haiku stands on its
own and presents a picture to the reader. I like to use alliteration, but
that's not really necessary.

More, please!
