"Black and white gentlemen, trotting self-importantly
across the green swards of the lawn
as water plays, cascading from my hose.
They wait the foolish worms who,
suffering delusions of rain falling,
rise to greet the spray.
One stroller cocks his head; eye glitters,
and he swoops.
The others mutter grievances
then rise to trees to carol in the new-fledged sun."
