THE BLESSED RAIN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Dear heart, dost thou complain
Last Line: For every drop that quivers on a clod!
Subject(s): Drinks & Drinking; Rain; Thirst; Wine

DEAR heart, dost thou complain
When the kind God sends rain?
Think of the thirsting crops
That drink the beady drops —
Think of the flowers, unfolding all their sweets —
The city's burning streets,
The famished flocks upon the mountain tops —
The windless casements, where the sick in vain
Cry for the cool, sweet rain!
Think — and thank God
For every drop that quivers on a clod!
