Be you the Almighty, Earth Mother Goddess, Thor, Allah or some local weather sprite.
Please make it rain.
Now I come to think of it
It might be best to start off with a gentle shower or two
Before bringing on the big guns
Not that I’m trying
To tell you how to do your job.
If it could come at night
That would be a bonus
And not on or directly before the day
I need to do the mowing.
I promise I won’t complain
About this rain
I have asked for
It lasts for more than three days
Or causes floods or serious damage
Or comes on the day I need to do the mowing.
