"To the Sky and Back"

           
   
1.
The sunbeams on the water danced
And coaxed some drops to rise
With then up thro' the air, to make
A visit to the skies.
   
           
   
2.
Then far and far above the earth
In clouds of white and gray,
Across the sky the water drops
Went wand'ring in their play.
   
           
    3. The wondrous visit at an end,
They hurried down again;
And as they came the children all
Cried out, "Oh! see the rain!"
