A Summer Afternoon Rain


Oh’ Muse!
High from the highest ranges!
Your smile hails with respite-
Stealing this fervent memories weary band-
My empty pots brimming with cold drops-
For your grace, upon this arid land!

And my geography turns away from the world-
To fill those starry eyed halts, dots
With glimpses of your blissful creation-
I behold, rest –a strife torn pilgrim
Away from the despair, worldly lies-Shun!

I rise, to this thunderous welcome!
That shut the doors with truth,
With your benign words, to be blessed
Upon this summer rain to beat the dust-
Of all my worldly stature, freest soul with your touch!

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
