Tomorrow the family will go to the well. Will water be there?

Tomorrow is the family reunion. It better not rain.

The well was almost dry last week. And still it has not rained.
We will play games and maybe swim. And it better not rain.
Has it rained at the well? Or is it still dry? Oh please, can it rain?
I hope it's really hot so a swim will feel good. It better not rain.
There were rain clouds on the hills but they did not come here. Why won't they come here?
If there is no place to swim, we can at least use a hose.
I remember playing at the well. We pulled out the water and the kids splashed around and we had a great time. I wish we never wasted that water. We won't play at all tomorrow if the well is dry. We will all be too sad.
The last reunion was great. Food cooked outside and drinks filled with ice. It better not rain.
Our food will be cooked with water from the river tonight. The animals use that water and it does not smell good. Oh why can't it rain?
The year before that was not so good. The drinks ran out and the ice ran out and we had to drink warm water. Yuck. Plain old water. Who needs that?
Maybe I should pray before I sleep. Shut my eyes and pray that there will soon be rain.
Maybe I should pray before I sleep. Shut my eyes and pray that there will not be rain.
Oh let there be rain. Send the clouds and let rain fall.
No rain, no rain, no rain, no, please, no rain.
We will run and splash all around the well. We will fall to our knees, our soaking wet knees, and give thanks.
I will do anything you ask, anything at all, just to have sun and not have rain.
Oh may it rain. Send us the clouds. Oh may it rain.
May it not rain. Let there be sun. May it not rain.
