Do not the lack of sunshine e’er lament,
When pregnant clouds their bounty on earth shed,
Such blessings for our well-being are meant,
Extol with thankfulness the gift instead;
Untended go the prayers for rain elsewhere,
As parched and famished creatures, young and old,
With yearning eyes into the morrow stare,
Expectant, but of suffering untold;
Forever in the human mind persists,
Ambivalence of what is bad or good,
In heart of Mother Nature none exists,
Fostering in all a sense of brotherhood;
Prosperity bespeaks a word of thanks,
Adversity among the noble ranks.

Belief is fading fast,
The House of Faith on shaky ground,
Foundations be recast,
Let prayers throughout the Earth resound
That Hope shall Faith outlast!
Loss of Life –
Scatter Wretched Remains on Dust Deathbeds!

Dancing raindrops echo dust
On the red brown earth,
Arid plants respond in trust,
Welcome, end to dearth –
Promise of rebirth!
