A Drought

The sun beats down so hot, so strong, so bright
It sucks the life and water out of land
Shade is very scarce, there is too much light
The damp soil turns into thirsty sand
All leaves and flowers wilt and turn to dust
They lose their color and their beauty, too
The wind rips them apart with just one gust
A short stem survives where the plant once grew
No rain comes to replenish the dry ground
Animals escape from the awful heat
Dead and droopy weeds blow all around
For water, living things have to compete

But soon dark, gray clouds gather in the sky
And to the long, harsh drought we say goodbye
