With the Rain

By Harrison R. Merrill

Dear Love, when April comes again this spring
And lilac blossoms droop in weeping showers
Where lonely robins flit about and bring
Back memories of dear, lost hours
When our young loves were stirred — awakening —
Twin blossoms sweeter far than perfumed flowers —
Sweet songs far lovelier than birds can sing —
A melody made deep by all our powers —

I’ll seek you where the old fence meets the stile
Beneath the catkined alders by the stream
Where in other days I’ve thrilled at your sweet smile
And in the dusk have seen your dear face gleam.

I’ll tremble then at all the old sweet pain —
My pent up tears will mingle with the rain.
