A Line-storm Song

The line—storm clouds fly tattered and swift,  
 The road is forlorn all day,  
Where a myriad snowy quartz stones lift,  
 And the hoof—prints vanish away.  
The roadside flowers, too wet for the bee,
 Expend their bloom in vain.  
Come over the hills and far with me,  
 And be my love in the rain.  
The birds have less to say for themselves  
 In the wood—world’s torn despair
Than now these numberless years the elves,  
 Although they are no less there:  
All song of the woods is crushed like some  
 Wild, easily shattered rose.  
Come, be my love in the wet woods; come,
 Where the boughs rain when it blows.  
There is the gale to urge behind  
 And bruit our singing down,  
And the shallow waters aflutter with wind  
 From which to gather your gown.    
What matter if we go clear to the west,  
 And come not through dry—shod?  
For wilding brooch shall wet your breast  
 The rain—fresh goldenrod.  
Oh, never this whelming east wind swells    
 But it seems like the sea’s return  
To the ancient lands where it left the shells  
 Before the age of the fern;  
And it seems like the time when after doubt  
 Our love came back amain.      
Oh, come forth into the storm and rout  
 And be my love in the rain.
