A Wandering Thing
By Robert Nichols
From “Two Songs of the Enigma”

THE HOPELESS rain—a sigh, a shadow—
Falters and drifts again, again over the meadow.
It wanders lost, drifts hither …. thither;
It blows, it goes, it knows not whither.
A profound grief, an unknown sorrow        5
Wanders always my strange life thoro’.
I know not ever what brings it hither,
Nor whence it comes …. nor goes it whither.
