"But now it is the rain
Possesses us entirely, the twilight and the rain."
"The thirsty earth soaks up the rain,
And drinks and gapes for drink again"
"The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night"
"There's always a period of curious fear between the first sweet-smelling breeze and the time when the rain comes cracking down."
J M W Turner
"The flowers are ravinedare thrown to the ground, the wind
by bees, the fruit blossoms
the rain forces everything."
John Atkinson Grimshaw
"I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain—and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light."
Vincent Van Gogh
"Flame burns, rain sinks into the cracks
And they all go to rack ruin beneath the thud of the years,
Stands genius a deathless adornment,
a name not to be worn out with the years."
