Spring Showers

I went outside into the night
So silvery slight was the fall of rain
That murmured quickly along the eaves
And tapped excitement on the leaves

To see the slope of rain in casement light
Then swiftly as it came, the shower was over
It scampered eastward with a running breeze
No keepsakes left, but dripping trees
And the dampend touch of grass and clover

The shower gone, in one swift flight
I watched the moon take back the night

    One of the things I most enjoy about reading poems here is afterward I can look at all around and appreciate it more and in many different ways like murmuring along the eves or the personification of scamper!!

    The last line is priceless, Carrie. The whole poem is first class, but, as so seldom happens, one line is gigantic. Love, daver
