Rain - don't go away!

I was so at loss of words when I woke up on May 1st to find it still raining from the previous evening and I had to borrow this poem to describe my delight and feelings...

Arabian Jasmine 'Maid of Orleans' - Jasminum sambac var. 'Maid of Orleans' - Jâtî
Rain, Rain don’t go away

Arabian Jasmine 'Belle of India' - Jasminum sambac var. 'Belle of India' - Jâtî
Rain, Rain I hope you stay
You make my friends think what they have lost
 Oleander - Nerium oleander - Karavîra

You make my friends happy for the one wish they made
Groundcherry - yet to be identified
 Black Lentil - Vigna mungo
Rain, Rain don’t stop falling
 Cannon Ball Tree - Couroupita guianensis
 So they can feel something one last time
 Asoka - Saraca indica
Rain, Rain I hope you kill the one who put pain in-
Mealy bug on Cape Honeysuckle
my friends of shame
Sugar Melon (scientific name anybody?)
Rain, Rain stop my friends from falling
Green Beans - Phaseolus vulgaris
Rain, Rain.I hoping it’ll put my friends pain in-
Gaura lindheimeri 'The Bride'
someone else's vase before it's too late
 Barbados Lily - Hippeastrum puniceum

Rain, Rain help them out so they will be amazed
Buds of Arabian Jasmine 'Belle of India' - Jasminum sambac var. 'Belle of India' - Jâtî
for there is no pain
