Rain Chant

Rain Chant
By Dawn Appleton

We learned the chant
As little girls
We sang and circled round.

We fear the chant
As grown-up girls
Watch Doppler and the ground.

What do we chant
For rain or shine
To as the gods to spare?

Dance round and round
Hide underground
Or flee in such despair?

We warmed the Globe
She fights us now
Is there too much to hope?

Or can we sway
Nature’s harm’s way
And throw ourselves a rope?

Dawn Appleton woke up to environmental issues late in life. She hopes it’s not too late.
