The Beautiful Lawn Sprinkler

Written by: Howard Nemerov | Biography
 | Quotes (9) |
 What gives it power makes it change its mind
At each extreme, and lean its rising rain
Down low, first one and then the other way;
In which exchange humility and pride
Reverse, forgive, arise, and die again,
Wherefore it holds at both ends of the day
The rainbow in its scattering grains of spray.
