The Rainy Day - Poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Written at the old home in Portland

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains,and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains,and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart, and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

    Be still, sad heart, stop repining
    Behind the clouds is the sun still shining
    Thy fate is common fate of all
    Into each life some rain must fall
    Some days must be dark and dreary.- -Really a wonderful and deeply philosophical poem as it says to accept life's trials and tribulations they being part of every life. (Report) Reply
