WIND and rain and lightest snow
All across her window go,
Breathe and tap and touch the pane
With the gentleness of rain,
Touch and glide and lightly blow
With the gentleness of snow.

All the drops, enchanted, pass
Slanted on her window-glass.
Wondrous light must fall the rain
So to touch her window-pane;
For she will not stir at all
As the drops most lightly fall.

Now the sound of faery horn
Shrilling in the woods away
Cannot move her, though it warn
Through the darkly waning day,
Though it bid her watch the snow
Ere to rain it turn and go.

Ticking in the shadowed eaves,
Falling dark on fallen leaves,
Wind and rain and lightest snow
Far beyond her window go,—
Storms may pass and lightning flare,
Still she sits unheeding there.
