Standing in the rain

...The busy falling rain increases now
And sopping leaves their dripping moisture pour
And from each loaded bough
Fast falls the double shower


Weed climbing hedges banks and meeds unmown
Where rushy fringed brooklet easy curls
Looks joyous while the rain
Strings their green suit pearls...

John Clare lines from The Summer Shower
