Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Rain
 
She waits for me, my lady Earth,
  Smiles and waits and sighs;
I’ll say her nay, and hide away,
  Then take her by surprise.
        Mary Mapes Dodge.—How the Rain Comes. April.
  1
The rain comes when the wind calls.
        Emerson.—Woodnotes, Part II. Line 271.
  2
Last night, above the whistling wind,
  I heard the welcome rain,—
A fusillade upon the roof,
  A tattoo on the pane:
The key-hole piped; the chimney-top
  A warlike trumpet blew.
        Bret Harte.—A Sanitary Message.
