RAIN, by            
First Line: Rain, rain, rain
Last Line: Of the rain, rain, rain.
Subject(s): Rain

Rain, rain, rain.
I find its endless plash delightful.
Now it rushes with a spiteful
Jar against the window pane.

Now it has a soft, low fall,
Like the tap of old desire.
And I sit beside my fire,
Vacant, with no thought at all,

Eased of passion, eased of pain,
Eased almost of long ambition,
Melted by the slow attrition
Of the rain, rain, rain.
