Blue Monday & Ruby Tuesday Too: Corn Rain
A mural in Yuma, Arizona celebrates the gift of corn. One photo, two memes.
She cannot see the grain/Ripening on hill and plain;/She cannot feel the rain/Upon her hand.
From “Dream Land” by Christina Rossetti
What if I could see no grain
Ripening on hill and plain?
What if there would fall no rain
On my beans and corn?
Fear not, child, for it will rain
On the hills and on the plain.
Beans and pumpkins, corn and grain
Will then drink their fill.
See, the rains have come at last!
Days of dust and drought are past!
Soon enough you’ll break your fast,
Eating beans and corn.
Corn is raining from the sky!
Wipe away your tears, don’t cry!
Fill your baskets, pile them high
With this blessed feast!
