P.S., I know what you mean in this poem. Much too late for tears. The tissue industry will always be busy. RIP 144 souls lost - PSA Flight 182 9:01 a.m. on Sept. 25, 1978 -Richard

love the various interpretations of the poem PS, its a very topical poem as there has been worries of a dam being breached in the Uk am sure tears were spilled at the thought of possessions and possibly lives being swept away:-( hugs jan xx

This would be terrifying. Can also be interpreted as a metaphor. Excellent! : )

Yes, this can be interpreted in a few different ways. Sometimes the spirit requires a flood to recover from sadness.

Andrew Fairchild (drop down) certainly said it all. What can I add? … Maybe that I liked the phrase, 'torrent of tears.' :) gw

One who seems strong and sturdy could break and give way, when the tears need release, this is lovely, P.S.
