NATURE POEMS: “THE RAIN” by William H. Davies

The Rain

I hear leaves drinking rain;
I hear rich leaves on top
Giving the poor beneath
Drop after drop;
’Tis a sweet noise to hear
These green leaves drinking near.

And when the Sun comes out,
After this Rain shall stop,
A wondrous Light will fill
Each dark, round drop;
I hope the Sun shines bright;
’Twill be a lovely sight.

  1. Deep and Clear,
    I hear the rain, inside many a heart
    silent faces, pressing deep cries within
    the beauty of the heart, in some, evident
    I hear the dampness in the heart although
    while the face, lit up like the Sun.

    1. Your comment is a beautiful poem in itself, with a sadness for humanity’s sorrows… In Spanish we have a saying “We see faces, but we don’t see hearts”. Indeed, you may see smiles on the outside, and never know the pain that is within a heart…

  2. Fantastic picture of rain falling tepidly and when the sun comes out the light will shine ever so brightly. Lovely poem by William. You know Amira here in Mumbai we are having torrential rains and it has created havoc in our city. The place that I stay in was flooded for more than eight hours and everything came to a standstill. No electricity too for more than fourteen hours.

    1. Oh wow dear Kamal! I hope you and your family are safe and things return to normal soon! Yes, Mother Nature is very powerful and can really create havoc as you said all over the world. Now is also hurricane and tornado season and big storms have been affecting many areas as well.
      Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, may the sun shine through soon by you! 🙏

      1. Yes all safe and fine with my family, Amira. My son too had taken our dog and had gone to pick up one of his friends but he could not come to the house and then stayed at my daughter’s house and came the next day when the waters went down. What a day but everything worked out fine the next day. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Yes would like to see the sun and its light now though rain is always welcomed.
