Send the Rain
Said farmer Brown, “It’s amazing.On the stubble these cows are grazing.
If we don’t get rain soon.
Instead of jumping the moon
These cows will receive quite a hazing.
There’s smoke in the air, not cookingFor storm clouds we’re diligently looking
The lakes look like puddles of mud
The crops will certainly be dud
Wild mountain grassesLook recently mowed and trimmed
Gasping for moisture
Blue skies deceptively cheeryThe drought does render us dreary
May God’s fingers drum happily on our roofs.
