    This poem is dedicated to Miss Tibba, who was the one who suggested I write a poem about it!

    Summer Rain

    The sun above, with fiery glow
    Has warmed this land that lies below
    In summer time, all baked in heat
    The ground it burns beneath our feet


    A land of green fades slow to brown
    As scorching heat comes beating down
    Too hot to rest, or sleep at night
    From heat that never gives respite


    But when above there forms a cloud
    It spreads around its cooling shroud
    The air is moist, and drips appears
    The sky has brought its welcome tears


    For comes the rains to cleanse our lands
    And wash the dryness from our hands
    To cool your brow, and chill your feet
    The summer rains that taste so sweet


    The gardens gleam in rainbow hues
    The flowers feed on silver dew
    And meadows sparkle, diamond lights
    For spots of rain all twinkle bright


    Now jump in puddles with a splash
    Or slide about on slippery grass
    Just feel the drizzle in your hair
    And run about without a care


    Oh, summer rain, come fall on me
    To quench the heat and make us free
    To lose ourselves in summer showers
    Come let the rain drops fall for hours


    Refresh yourself with tender spray
    Enjoy the summer's rainy days
    Each little drop of rain that falls
    In summertime, gives life to all

    That is quite an honour, Miss Tibba, to have a poem by Master Simbo dedicated to you. But well-deserved too. *cheers for Simbo and Tibba*
