by Elinor Wylie (1885 - 1928)

O clear and musical
Language: English 
O clear and musical,
Sing again! Sing again!
Hear the rain fall
Through the long night,
Bring me your song again,
O dear delight!

O dear and comforting,
Mine again! Mine again!
Hear the rain sing
And the dark rejoice!
Shine like a spark again,
O clearest voice!
O clearest voice!
