    There is something particularly charming about this poem- - she gives us such unique phrases and words used in different contexts.- - -
    A half a dozen kissed the eaves,
    And made the gables laugh.- - - - - -

    Emily's love of nature is so embodied in her verse. It resonates so charmingly as she teaches us how to look at a simple rain shower through her eyes. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful portrayal of the charms of nature as it appears in a drizzle. Thanks.
    A drop fell on the apple tree / Another on the roof
    A few went out to help the brook / That went to help the sea. (Report) Reply

    Marvelously entertaining and very proactive, in terms of her 'twist of fate' of the poem's theme, in the last few lines. (Report) Reply
