SURRENDER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I hear the rain in my garden
Last Line: Peace in my heart again.
Subject(s): Grief; Rain; Sorrow; Sadness


I hear the rain in my garden
Softly beseeching me
To slip from the arms of sorrow
For a rendezvous under the tree.
Now with his long silver fingers
He taps on my window there,
And my heart stirs as it remembers
The feel of his hands in my hair.

I have been faithful to sorrow,
I have lain with him night after night;
But barren has been all his passion,
And futile has been his delight.
Then why should I lie here longer,
Restless and unfulfilled
When the promise in rain's entreaty
Can be neither evaded nor stilled.

I will go into the garden;
I will give myself to the rain;
And perhaps will be born of this union
Peace in my heart again.
