The Ectasy the Rain Brings

The ectasy the rain brings;

To the subdued with sorrow farmer

Condensing from the heavens

To the lands filled with famine

Quenching the earth's thirst

To the labourers and workers

Drowning our troubles in its presence

Against the suffering-soothing scorching sun

And bringing tranquility to our mind

To the lazy school children

"Shall we go to school in the rain

Their voices sing with excitement

Ringing with joy of not learning

To the wicked government

When the rain shall become flood

For they have found an excuse

To leave the broken bridge broken

To those with water

"Why waste a penny at the borehole

When I can get it for free

O what joy the rain brings"
