For today, here's a little poem by Amy Lowell that describes a summer shower:
A ShowerAmazing how a simple little love poem can evoke such powerful images and feelings. Amy Lowell is one of my favorites, so this is the second Friday in a row that I'm featuring one of her poems!
That sputter of rain, flipping the hedge-rows
And making the highways hiss,
How I love it!
And the touch of you upon my arm
As you press against me that my umbrella
May cover you.
Tinkle of drops on stretched silk.
Wet murmur through green branches.
from Amy Lowell: Selected Poems [821 LOW]
