I'm praying for rain

It’s awfully hot
And very dry
It will not rain
I wonder why

My lawn is brown
And barely alive
Some of my plants
Will not survive

Mosquitoes are gone
I don’t know where
I’m not getting bit
So I don’t care

An Indian Rain Dance
I must learn how
Keep praying for rain
I must do now
