Rain On The Down

by Arthur Symons

Rain On The Down is a poem by Arthur Symons that captures the beauty and mystery of the English countryside in the rain. The poem is set on a downland (a type of rolling hill) on a rainy day. The speaker is alone, and he is filled with a sense of peace and tranquility. He listens to the rain falling on the leaves and the grass, and he watches the clouds scudding across the sky. He feels a sense of connection to the natural world, and he is grateful for the beauty of the rain. The poem is written in free verse, and it is full of sensory imagery. Symons uses vivid language to describe the sights, sounds, and smells of the rain. He also uses symbolism to evoke a sense of mystery and wonder. The rain is a symbol of change, transformation, and renewal. It is also a symbol of the speaker's own inner journey. "Rain On The Down" is a beautiful and evocative poem that captures the power of nature. It is a reminder that even in the midst of change, there is always beauty to be found.
