"The Rain"
by Robert Creeley

All night the sound had
come back again,
and again falls
this quiet, persistent rain.

I love this poem because it reminds me of what it is like to be completely enveloped in love. It reminded me of how I want to love and be loved. I want a love that is comforting and consistent like a rainstorm, not harsh and unpredictable like thunder. I get the vivid idea of rain just drenching me head to toe and wrapping me up; how I want to feel while being loved by someone. The last line, "Be wet with a decent happiness" reminds me to cover my life with love.
