The Breaking of the Drought
by Frederick J. Atwood
Listen!—it rains; it rains!
The prayer of the grass is heard;
The thirsty ground drinks eagerly
As a famished man eats bread.
The moan of the trees is hushed,
And the violets under the banks
Lift up their heads so gratefully,
And smilingly give thanks. 🌧Thankful for all this rain! New trees planted in Preston & Lake City were getting a little thirsty.❤️ #mnappleorchards #prestonmn #lakecitymn #partyof3 #applefarming #driftlessapples #blossomhillorchard #blossomhillorchardandfarm #blossomhillapples
