For once, let it rain
on this dust and stone earth we belong

Rain to heal the wound
that gives pain to the farmer

Rain to drain curses away
from those who didn’t send their first fruits
to the seventy-seven gods

Fill lakes and rivers
and impregnate them with sea creatures

Rain before the people of Hiakrom travel to Gyatakrom
across crusty-dry land for a morsel or a grain to eat and die.   


Because when you rain, the soul of mankind will rejoice
leaving the spirit of the ancestors to sleep in peace

Again, rain!
