Raindrops
Falling
Unsteady rhythm
Minute drumbeats
Playing on the roof
Rolling down the window panes

Patter
Splatter
Puddles filling
Over spilling
Truncated rings spread
With every new-fallen bead

Your rhythm and choice of words create a wonderful description of the sights and sounds of a rainy day.
I liked this very much.

Nice poem! I puzzled over the word "truncated", because the definition of truncated I was thinking of had to do with having an end cut off (like a truncated cone, in geometry) I had to look it up to remember it can also mean "cut short in duration," which, I assume is the definition you're using. Anyway, very nice!
