My grief and I walked quietly
A day ago, a year ago;
And all the hills were sweet and wet
For it was raining, raining slow.

A thousand fragrances smoked up
Of new-laid dust, of sage, and pine.
My footsteps sagged into the loam
For it was raining all the time.

It cupped in leaves, and dripped from leaves
And ran in ribbons on the ground.
The conifers moved heavily

And swayed into the rhythmic sound.
Thunder shot the air and light
Froze terribly an instant... still
I smiled the while I wept, for it
Was raining, raining on the hill.
