The flowers were in despair
For the rains had failed again
The animals were in despair
No water to drink anywhere;
And the people are desperate

The flowers are not blooming
The animals are not surviving
The crops are non-existent
And the children are dying

The world was despairing
Helpless, yet helping; such
Awful news; everywhere

The earth was in despair
Trying to catch the tears,
Of mothers crying
For without the rain
Tears was all it had
To nourish the flowers
