And the rain came down a blessing

At the very best
I was put to test
With the future left to guessing

But between the rows
Where the crabgrass grows

That will set my lot to swearing
I was put in awe at the seeming law
That the weather had no bearing

O’er the weeds that grew like a countercoup
Not a ray of sun was plying

Nor a drop of rain
That will stir the plain
While my garden plot was dying
