Foul with stains of gushing torrents and descending rains.

We knew it would rain, for the poplars showed
  The white of their leaves, the amber grain
    Shrunk in the wind,--and the lightning now
      Is tangled in tremulous skeins of rain.
      - Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Before the Rain

A little rain will fill
  The lily's cup which hardly moists the field.

The mighty Rain
  Holds the vast empire of the sky alone.

If there be one righteous person, the rain falls for his sake.

Dashing in big drops on the narrow pane,
  And making mournful music for the mind,
    While plays his interlude the wizzard wind,
      I hear the singing of the frequent rain.

Nature, like man, sometimes weeps for gladness.

She waits for me, my lady Earth,
  Smiles and waits and sighs;
    I'll say her nay, and hide away,
      Then take her by surprise.

        How the Raid Comes--April

The spongy clouds are filled with gathering rain.

All day the rain bathed the dark hyacinths in vain; the flood may pour from morn till night, nor wash the pretty Indian white.
      - Mohammed Shems-ed-Deen Hafiz (pseudonym of Shams-Ed-Dinmuhammad)

Last night, above the whistling wind,
  I heard the welcome rain,--
    A fusillade upon the roof,
      A tattoo on the pane:
        The keyhole piped; the chimney-top
          A warlike trumpet blew.
      - Bret Harte (Francis Bret Harte)

Tho' the rain is on the river,
  Yet the sun is on the hill.
      - F. Wyville Home, Sunshine and Rain

How it pours, pours, pours,
  In a never-ending sheet!
    How it drives beneath the doors!
      How it soaks the passer's feet!
        How it rattles on the shutter!
          How it rumples up the lawn!
            How 'twill sigh, and moan, and mutter,
              From darkness until dawn.
      - Rossiter Johnson, Rhyme of the Rain

Remember that every drop of rain that falls bears into the bosom of the earth a quality of beautiful fertility.
      - George Henry Lewes

For after all the best thing one can do when it is raining, is to let it rain.

Like a river down the gutter roars the rain, the welcome rain!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The day is dark and cold and dreary; it rains, and the wind is never weary.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Be still, sad heart, and cease repining;
  Behind the clouds the sun is shining;
    Thy fate is the common fate of all,
      Into each life some rain must fall,
        Some days must be dark and dreary.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, An April Day
