We all know rain:
Brown branches dripping,
Streaming warm on the sky,
Convulsively heaving,
Shaking its wet rivulets
Through shuddering eyes;
Steaming lay you and I
Knowing the rain,
Each sheltering beneath
And more afraid to be dry;
Clutched gasping
To catch our breath
Under torrents of grey clouds

I say
"It rains because it must rain"
And sigh

And wet inside
We lay grasping.

One ray collapses,
Shining on our mist.
