After Storm
By Louise Redfield
THE STORM that must have spoiled the apple-bloom,
The rain that kept me housed, the wind that chills
The little birds, the thunder and the gloom,
Return defeated to their far-off hills.
Upon the roof their footsteps pass. A lull        5
Falls on the noisy weeping of the eaves.
Out is my fire and my book grown dull.
The sun peers out upon the shining leaves.
