When the Rains Come

When the rains come down And the dark clouds fill the sky The old men go walkabout When the rains come down And the earth no longer dry The old women praise the Lord When the rains come down And the dams are overflowing The young men learn the secrets When the rains come down And fertile fields start growing The young women long for love

    This is like a song, simply beautiful, Margaret. I love the simple beauty of a sedoka, which you have mastered with delicate hands. :)

    An eloquent, thought-provoking write, Margaret. It's the life cycle renewing with the young and ending with the aged. Very nice sedoka! Love, Carolyn
