Rain Comes


it is addressed thusly:
A song.
it reads:
RAIN COMES, it is not the sound
But the suddenness of it sounding
The strangeness of air in which it is drowned
Though silence soon it is drowning
The lightness of the sky broken by drops
Crystal-bright in their dropping
A shadow of heavy air that stops
And the break of that heaviness stopping
Gray and black the glowering cloud
Bluster and boom in its clouding
To announce a doom to the gath'ring crowd
Made soon enow by its crowding
By strange device, in the west of the eve
Shows forth the sign of the evening
The liquid sun, to take its leave
Blasts rain alight in its leaving.
