([' '])


MAY RAIN
May rain falls quietly,
More quietly on the heart
than lover's words
Or the peace of love's sleep.

Scented with wet plum
bloom
And singing, May rain
comes down
And none knows how deep

In the earth's content,
How deep, how deep is
earth's joy in this rain
Down to her deep root;

And the seed is content,
The exploring root,
the bulb slow swelling
And the triumphant shoot.

[Elsa Gidlow, 1933]
