Come with rain, O loud Southwester!
Bring the singer, bring the nester;
Give the buried flower a dream;
Make the settled snow-bank steam;
Find the brown beneath the white;
But whate?er you do to-night,
Bathe my window, make it flow,
Melt it as the ices go;
Melt the glass and leave the sticks
Like a hermit?s crucifix;
Burst into my narrow stall;
Swing the picture on the wall;
Run the rattling pages o?er;
Scatter poems on the floor;
Turn the poet out of door.
(from "A Boy?s Will" - 1913)
