Welcome Sound. - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

I don't complain about the rain.
That hammers on my window pane
I'm glad to hear it once again.

It marks the end of prolonged drought.
We need the rain there is no doubt
For far too long we've gone without

Without the rain the soil's too dry.
It matters not how hard we try.
Our crops just shrivel up and die.

The blessed rain has fallen finally
Arriving unexpectedly
The earth absorbs it greedily.

Tomorrow we will start to sow.
New crops we are quite sure will grow
Then in due course green shoots will show.

It seems the experts can't explain
The reason for the lack of rain
But now we hope we can regain

The rich dark soils fertility
Although there is no guarantee.
We have to think positively
A farmer needs both rain and sun
But not too much of either oneNeither can be relieduponMonday,16 April 2012
