by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

The wind has such a rainy sound
Language: English 
The wind has such a rainy sound
  Moaning through the town,
The sea has such a windy sound, --
  Will the ships go down?

The apples in the orchard
  Tumble from their tree. --
Oh will the ships go down, go down,
  In the windy sea?
