SUMMER SHOWER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A drop fell on the apple tree / another on the roof
Last Line: And signed the fete away.
Subject(s): Rain; Summer

A drop fell on the apple tree,
Another on the roof;
A half a dozen kissed the eaves,
And made the gables laugh.
A few went out to help the brook,
That went to help the sea.
Myself conjectured, Were they pearls,
What necklackes could be!
The dust replaced in hoisted roads,
The birds jocoser sung;
The sunshine threw his hat away,
The orchards spangles hung.
The breeezes brought dejected lutes,
And bathed them in the glee;
The East put out a single flag,
And signed the fete away.
