'Stanza No. 1'

I hear leaves drinking rain;
I hear rich leaves on top
Giving the poor beneath
Drop after drop;
‘tis a sweet noise to hear
These green leaves drinking near.
          These lines have been taken from the poem, “The Rain” by W.H. Davies.

           The poem is about rain. The falling rain on leaves produces a sweet music. After rain, the sun shines bright. The rain drops shine in the sunshine. It makes a lovely sight everywhere.


           The poet hears the sound of falling rain on leaves. The leaves seem to be drinking water. The top leaves are growing in plenty; therefore rich. The lower leaves are growing thin; therefore poor. The rain is falling in heavy showers on the top rich leaves. But the rain water is falling drop after drop on the lower thin leaves. It looks as the rich people give alms coin after coin to the poor. However, the music produced by the falling rain on the leaves is soft and sweet.
