The Agony of Rain

raindropA single drop fell from the sky

To rest upon a listing sill

To look at me, and I thus watched

My life flickering in its trespass

 

A single drop of water whence

Did the earth spring forth its glory then

And floods came down to drown it so

As it glistened in a wooden crevasse

 

All of time and all of me

Suspended in that crystal globe

That burst and ran forth in decay

And then the downpour came to pass
