Mode of addressing rain


Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


Clouds. Preparations to be made for the coming rain; the springbok to be watched for, etc. (L VIII.-23. 8018-8029). The old men address the rain and the rain-clouds. The rain-clouds 'go along and are becoming black' ('jackal-clouds'). People fear the rain while on the hunting ground and desire the rain thats brings the springbok.
