Rain on the Down
By Arthur Symons (1865–1945)
NIGHT, and the down by the sea,
And the veil of rain on the down;
And she came through the mist and the rain to me
From the safe warm lights of the town.
The rain shone in her hair,        5
And her face gleam’d in the rain;
And only the night and the rain were there
As she came to me out of the rain.
