The Last of April Rains

She waits for me, my lady Earth, 
Smiles and waits and sighs; 
I'll say her nay, and hide away, 
Then take her by surprise. 
Mary Mapes Dodge, American author of children's books (1831–1905), in "How the Rain Comes–April" (1874) 

Finally, after a long day under a blanket of cloud, the skies opened and soaked the earth. Mom's irises stuck their tongues out to catch the drops.
