RAIN ON THE ROOF, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Loud on my roof the regiments of rain
Last Line: Where only silence and her legions creep.
Subject(s): Rain

LOUD on my roof the regiments of rain
March with their old insistence, and I hear
Troop after troop, column and troop again,
Sweep by before Dawn's shining hosts appear.

O armies of the night, your rhythmic tramp
Lures me at last to the dim bourne of Sleep,
And you and I find peace in some far camp
Where only Silence and her legions creep.
