The teacher on his stool was
Reading of Mary Slessor to the class.
Their attention wander does
Drenching rain has come - alas.
How to keep them listening
When pouring down rain comes.
Tis only Oregon weather showing this-a-thing
Driving to cover all the bums.
As usual the rain slackens
At least temporarily.
But soon the sky again blackens
Rain storm Agnes returns apparently.
All wet things must end it seems
Until they come again to visit.
Students return to their dreams
If rain pours again, they may miss it!
