ROSSITER JOHNSON
American author and editor
(1840 - 1931)

When my water-proof umbrella proved a sieve, sieve, sieve,
  When my shiny new umbrella proved a sieve.
      - A Rhyme of the Rain [Umbrellas]

O for a lodge in a garden of cucumbers!
  O for an iceberg or two at control!
    O for a vale that at midday the dew cumbers!
      O for a pleasure trip up to the pole!
      - Ninety-Nine in the Shade [Summer]

How it pours, pours, pours,
  In a never-ending sheet!
    How it drives beneath the doors!
      How it soaks the passer's feet!
        How it rattles on the shutter!
          How it rumples up the lawn!
            How 'twill sigh, and moan, and mutter,
              From darkness until dawn.
      - Rhyme of the Rain [Rain]
