--> The heavens are bowed about my head, shouting like seraph wars,
--> With rains that might put out the sun and clean the sky of stars,
--> Rains like the fall of ruined seas from secret worlds above,
--> The roaring of the rains of God none but the lonely love.
--> Feast in my hall, O foemen, and eat and drink and drain,
--> You never loved the sun in heaven as I have loved the rain.

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's Literature/ConanTheBarbarian story ''Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon'', the death of the king and his sons from ThePlague is immediately succeeded by a terrible storm -- but the next morning dawns clear and bright, with the end of the plague. This is interpreted as a sign from the gods of wonderful wonderfulness. (They're wrong.)

* The HeckleAndJeckle cartoon ''The Rainmakers'' (1951) has the magpies impulsively wishing it would stop raining forever after a ruined picnic. When the consequences (horrible heat and drought) kick in, they set out to undo the wish-- and when they succeed they're given a big honorary parade in the pouring rain.
