    The white of their leaves, the amber grain
    Shrunk in the wind,--and the lightning now
    Is tangled in tremulous skeins of rain.

The Clouds consign their treasures to the fields;
And, softly shaking on the dimpled pool
Prelusive drops, let all their moisture flow
In large effusion, o'er the freshen'd world.

With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
By swaggering could I never thrive,
For the rain it raineth every day.

How it pours, pours, pours,
In a never-ending sheet!
How it drives beneath the doors!
How it soaks the passer's feet!
How it rattles on the shutter!
How it rumples up the lawn!
How 'twill sigh, and moan, and mutter,
From darkness until dawn.
