The Rain Is My Favorite Poem
I discovered this poem by Robert Creeley in the early 1970's and was taken by his pleading for a type of happiness which was natural..unforced...basic...and complete...much like the "rain" in life...it can be a kind of cleansing, comforting, calming...which balances out the harshness, unpredictablity, insecurity and temptations of daily life...Creeley seems to be seeking a love which settles and relaxes him...not a lustfilled love...but a love which is more pure, more lasting, more enduring, that can be counted on and relied on. Creeley's identity and search for meaning and expression may have found a temporary and happy clarity in "the rain"...it is his hope and desire for a simple side by side love..which is a natural part of a contented life.
