When the rain came at last
it was long overdue
not that the sunshine
we'd ever eschew
But the ground was so parched
and the water was low
so the need was profound
for the reservoir flow

And the farmers and gardeners
were mighty relieved
as the long lack of rainfall
had left them all peeved
So we danced as the patter
of raindrops fell fast
and the temperature dropped 
for some respite at last
