When days are long and hot
with no signs rain will come
plants wilting and frogs begging
asking God to please send some.

Your recalling days it rained too much
wishing those days will come back soon
promising not to complain if it interferes
with your daily walks in the afternoon.

Accepting what God in Heaven gives us
it's best we accept it with a smile
and pray He will send us some rain
if not today, in a little while.
