399. The Thunder-Shower
 
By John Hall Wheelock
 
 
THE LIGHTNING flashed, and lifted
  The lids of heaven apart,
The fiery thunder rolled you
  All night long through my heart.
 
From dreams of you at dawn        5
  I rose to the window ledge:
The storm had passed away,
  The lake lapped on the sedge.
 
The lyre of heaven trembled
  Still with the thought of you,        10
The twilight on the waters,
  And all my spirit, too.
