#PoetryBreak: Spring Storm

Scottish Rain (M.A.Reilly)

Spring Storm

William Carlos Williams - 1883-1963
The sky has given over 
its bitterness. 
Out of the dark change 
all day long 
rain falls and falls 
as if it would never end. 
Still the snow keeps 
its hold on the ground. 
But water, water 
from a thousand runnels! 
It collects swiftly, 
dappled with black 
cuts a way for itself 
through green ice in the gutters. 
Drop after drop it falls 
from the withered grass-stems 
of the overhanging embankment.

  1. Let it wash over, through, and around us. Let it cleanse the earth and wash away our tears. Let the rain bring a new and better day.
