It rained and rained and rained,
The average fall was well maintained.
And when the tracks were simply bogs
It started raining cats and dogs.
After a drought of half an hour
We had a most refreshing shower.
And then the most curious thing of all,
a gentle rain begun to fall.
Next day but one was fairly dry
Save for one deluge from the sky
Which wetted the party to the skin
and then, at last – the rain set in.
