WHO STOLE THOSE

GOLDEN RAYS OF SUN?

By Josie Whitehead

Who Stole Those Golden Rays

Who stole those golden rays of sun
     And sent us rain instead?
And who has sent those drops of rain
     To fall upon my head?

Who ordered that those dark black clouds
     Should hide that sky of blue?
I know for certain it’s not me - - 
     But think it must be . . . . . you!!

We grumble when the rain comes down
        Instead of being glad,
But without the rain we’d have no food
     And things would be quite bad.

There’d be no water in our taps,
      And tell me what we’d drink?
So a dry old world, without our rain,
      Would be terrible I think.

We’d look out on a desert world –
       No flowers or trees in sight –
And I think we’d pray for rain to come
      And put our world to rights.
