Edgar Lee Masters - Rain In My Heart

There is a quiet in my heart
Like on who rests from days of pain.
Outside, the sparrows on the roof
Are chirping in the dripping rain.

Rain in my heart; rain on the roof;
And memory sleeps beneath the gray 
And the windless sky and brings no
   dreams
Of any well remembered day.

I would not have the heavens fair,
Nor golden clouds, nor breezes
   mild,
But days like this, until my heart 
To loss of you is reconciled. 

I would not see you. Every hope 
To know you as you were has 
   ranged.
I, who am altered, would not find 
The face I loved so greatly changed.
