The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women. 1917.

Rain, Rain!

Zoë Akins

RAIN, rain,—fall, fall,

In a heavy screen—

That my lover be not seen!

Wind, wind,—blow, blow,

Till the leaves are stirred—

That my lover be not heard!

Storm, storm,—rage, rage,

Like a war around—

That my lover be not found!

… Lark, lark,—hush … hush …

Softer music make—

That my lover may not wake….
