New Year Rain



It started firstly the clouds rolling in clusters
Causing darkness to overcome daylight
The wind arrived in a frankly filthy mood
Causing a stir and havoc to a devoid earth

Then the tide of the raging storm surged in
As the chipping birds and anxious animals fled
Thirsty throats for long deprived cherished the moment
Amidst the water ruining the desolate earth

Soon calm was being restored
And the long months of agony are over
The baked soil is ready for cultivation
The animals are out in the field to graze
