    No partiality for the rain, it drenches everything in the word... so humanity to do the same. (Report) Reply

    The poem is deceptively simple. It addresses grace and interconnectedness. Rain connects us to those far at sea. Rain gives life to tree and grass and to us. (Report) Reply

    This lovely poem, even in its simplicity, brings all the excitement that the rains are all about. The joy of reading this poem made me translate it into Hindi. (Report) Reply

    Very minimalistic. Hardly worth bringing an umbrella. (Report) Reply

    We shouldnt look too hard for meanings. Just enjoy RLS's wicked sense of humour, rather like Spike Milligan's, using the medium of poetry to surprise and amuse (Report) Reply

    maybe this is one of his unfinished
    works. i wonder what interrupted
    his thought process...pain in his head.

    Stevenson in one of his lighter moments with more than a touch of another great tongue-in-cheek writer, Lewis Carroll. It would be nice to see an anthology of other send-ups of Victorian 'high seriousness'. Maybe someone knows of one. (Report) Reply
