For giraffes and rain, from poetryfoundation.org.

from Rain at the Zoo / by Kristen Tracy

Zebras zipped across the field.
It was springtime in Michigan.  I watched
the giraffe shuffle itself backwards, toward
the herd, its bone- and rust-colored fur beading
with water.  The entire mix of animals stood
away from the trees.
