No Shortage Of Things

No shortage of things for to write rhymes about
The cool winds of late Autumn are blowing from the south
The rain from the gray sky is drizzling down
On the now green paddocks that five weeks ago were brown
The long dry spell is over at least for awhile
And farmer Joe is happy he has reason to smile
Up to a fortnight ago he was feeding his cattle hay
Now on nutritious young grass they are gaining weight by the day
It is a fact that rain is as important as sunshine and fact never lie
Without it grass and crops would not grow and people and other creatures of thirst and hunger would die
The last few years due to lack of rain the farmers financially or in other ways not doing well
Of loss of livestock and revenue they have sad stories to tell
And for a rhymer no shortage of things for to write rhymes about
With the rain drizzling down and the wind from the south.
