Possesses us entirely, the twilight and the rain."

And drinks and gapes for drink again"

The rain makes running pools in the gutter. 
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night"

by bees, the fruit blossoms 

are thrown to the ground, the wind 
the rain forces everything."

I have walked out in rain—and back in rain. 
I have outwalked the furthest city light."

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."
