Last week's little rainfall was lapped up by the sun in no time flat
so once again we are singing praises for a much needed rain!
Earth laughs; from laden heavens spills the happiness of rain
It splashes into flower cups and dances on the lane
It kisses thirsty gardens, and douses the dusty street
And draws a puddle world of bliss for children in bare feet
As thirsty hills and fields are drenched and quenched; the robin sings
With the contagious happiness of rain-drop dazzled things
