Rain and the Robin

Written by: Duncan Campbell Scott | Biography
 A ROBIN in the morning,
In the morning early,
Sang a song of warning,
"There'll be rain, there'll be rain."
Very,very clearly 
From the orchard
Came the gentle horning,
"There'll be rain."
But the hasty farmer 
Cut his hay down,
Did not heed the charmer
From the orchard,
And the mower's clatter
Ceased at noontide,
For with drip and spatter
Down came the rain.
Then the prophet robin
Hidden in the crab-tree
Railed upon the farmer,
"I told you so, I told you so."
As the rain grew stronger, 
And his heart grew prouder,
Notes so full and slow 
Coming blither, louder,
"I told you so, I told you so,"
"I told you so."
