SONGS OF THE SEA CHILDREN: 14, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The rain-wind from the east
Last Line: There, there, sweetheart!
Subject(s): Rain; Wind


The rain-wind from the East,
So long a wanderer
Beyond the sources of the sun,
Brings back the crocus April and the showers.
A heart upwelling in the forest flowers
Has made them lovers every one.
Who makes the twilight seem to stir
In happy tears released?
There, there, sweetheart!
The night-wind from the West,
The broad eaves of the sky,
Brings back across the orchard hills
The memories of a thousand springs with him;
And the white apple valleys in a dream
Listen to the dark whippoorwills.
Is the old burden of their joy
So great they cannot rest?
There, there, sweetheart!
