Oh aqua of the sky
I beg of you to pour
Down on the cracked
And parched dust
Of our home and land
I ask for a gentle shower
Through darkness of the night
To heal the scars
To feed the earth
And its people
Please fill our chasms
Continuously by regular instalments
And may we keep
The lesson of your absence
And use you sparingly
May we release the mentality
Of entitlement to the resources
Nature has so kindly seen
To provide us with
