A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

The Rain Comes Again

The rain comes again
Trying, as we all do
To get to where it must go
From where it is

It will go back
As we all do
To where we belong
We may linger; we do not stay

It has no malice
Comes quietly
Leaves silently
Wearing away even stone

The leaf catches it
It cannot hold
The turf waits
Only a moment

Unnecessary, but welcome
Aren’t we all?
