Rain! Rain! Blessed Rain!
Soft and gentle, it snuck in its welcome wetness to dampen the dry ground and perhaps sprout a few seeds on the bare hills. Winter's a'comin'
Your rainy Saturday poem by Richard Wilbur.
Shaggy and heavily natural, they stand
Immobile under their thick and cumbrous manes,
Pent in a barbed enclosure which contains,
By way of compensation, grazing-land.
Nothing disturbs them now. In slow increase
They fatten like the grass. Doomed to be idle,
To haul no cart or wagon, wear no bridle,
They grow into a vegetable peace.
Soul is the issue of so strict a fate.
They harbor visions in their waking eyes,
And with their quiet ears participate
In heaven's pure serenity, which lies
So near all things -- yet from the beasts concealed,
Serene now, superhuman, they crop their field.
