The rain so dense


The rain so dense
you cannot pull your breath through the drops
you cannot stop the fall
cannot make the ponds rise either
cannot paint anything with it
neither the concrete nor the window panes
cannot hold it like a bird in the hand
cannot splash it into a flight of drops
cannot even let it fall
for it'll rinse the heart
to the point of non-recognition
cannot wash my face with it
for it'll leave me water marked and masked
cannot listen to it for it'll turn me into
the music of a raindropped instrument
awfully tedious to my ear
cannot place anything in it
so that it looks happy and not like rain
cannot really do anything with it
it leaves no thunder awake

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
