mostly today in north cornwall

It rained and rained and rained,
The average fall was well maintained.
And when the tracks were simply bogs
It started raining cats and dogs.
After a drought of half an hour
We had a most refreshing shower.
And then the most curious thing of all,
a gentle rain begun to fall.
Next day but one was fairly dry
Save for one deluge from the sky
Which wetted the party to the skin
and then, at last - the rain set in.
