May Showers

This May we're asking for no showers.
We've had enough for all our flowers.

March and April have been wet,
Crops are as soaked as they can get.

We're wanting now, to see the sun
And hoping rain and wind is done.

We pray May showers can wait to pour
In mid-July when needed more.

    It stormed here today, Joyce, and I loved it. I hope you get the weather you want. Nicely written couplets.
