In large effusion, o'er the freshened world.

As if to find shelter here with me.

And drinks and gapes for drink again;
The plants suck in the earth, and are
With constant drinking fresh and fair.

With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
A foolish thing was but a toy,
For the rain it raineth every day.
