    How Beautiful is the Rain!

    How beautiful is the rain!

    After the dust and heat,

    In the broad and fiery street,

    In the narrow lane,

    How beautiful is the rain!

    How it clatters along the roofs,

    Like the tramp of hoofs!

    How it gushes and struggles out

    From the throat of the overflowing spout

    Across the window-pane

    It pours and pours;

    And swift and wide,

    Like a river down the gutter roars

    The rain, the welcome rain!

    The sick man from his chamber

    Looks at the twisted brooks;

    He can feel the cool

    Breath of each little pool;

    His fevered brain

    Grows calm again,

    And he breathes a blessing on the rain.

    From the neighbouring school

    Come the boys,

    With more than their wonted noise

    And commotion;

    And down the wet streets

    Sail their mimic fleets,

    Till the treacherous pool

    Engulfs them in its whirling

    And turbulent ocean.

    In the country, on every side,

    Where far and wide,

    Like a leopard’s tawny and spotted hide

    Stretches the plain,

    To the dry grass and the drier grain

    How welcome is the rain!

    In the furrowed land

    The toilsome and patient oxen stand:

    Lifting the yoke-encumbered head,

    With their dilated nostrils spread,

    They silently inhale

    The clover-scented gale,

    And the vapours that arise

    From the well-watered and smoking soil.

    For this rest in the furrow after toil

    Their large and lustrous eyes

    Seem to thank the Lord,

    More than man’s spoken word.

    N ear at hand,

    From under the sheltering trees,

    The farmer sees

    His pastures, and his fields of grain,

    As they bend their tops

    To the numberless beating drops

    Of the incessant rain.

    He counts it as no sin

    That he sees therein

    Only his own thrift and gain.
