by Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950)

Rain comes down
Language: English 
Rain comes down . . . and hushes the town . . .
And where is the voice ... that I heard crying?
Snow settles over the nettles ...
Where is the voice that I heard crying?

Sand at last on the drifting mast ...
And where is the voice that I heard crying?
Earth now on the busy brow, ...
And where is the voice ... that I heard crying?
