Spring Torrents
By Sara Teasdale
From “Memories”

WILL it always be like this until I am dead?
  Every spring must I bear it all again—
With the first red haze of the budding maple boughs,
  The first sweet-smelling rain?
Oh, I am like a rock in the rising river        5
  Where the flooded water breaks with a low call,
Like a rock that knows the cry of the waters
  And can not answer at all.
