This post takes us back to the very earliest days. We dig deep into the past of poetry. I was only 11 years of age when I wrote this poem. Australia was in drought at the time. I was in Year 6 (or Grade 6) at St. Joseph’s School in Junee (rural NSW). Oddly enough the school principal (from Polish background and had a fondness for wearing Hawaiian shirts!) gave it a principal’s award.
Has put rain in doubt.
