The Voice of The Rain



The Voice of The Rain :




And who art thou? said I to the soft-falling shower,


Which, strange to tell, gave me an answer, as here translated:


I am the Poem of Earth, said the voice of the rain,


Eternal I rise impalpable out of the land and the bottomless sea,


Upward to heaven, whence, vaguely form'd, altogether changed, and yet the same,


I descend to lave the drouths, atomies, dust-layers of the globe,


And all that in them without me were seeds only, latent, unborn;


And forever, by day and night, I give back life to my own origin,


and make pure and beautify it;


(For song, issuing from its birth-place, after fulfilment, wandering, Reck'd or unreck'd, duly with love returns.)


By Walt Whitman
