"After Rain" by Alfred Noyes

After Rain
by Alfred Noyes

Listen! On sweetening air
     The blackbird growing bold
Flings out, where green boughs glisten,
     Three splashes of wild gold.

Daughter of April, hear;
     And hear, O barefoot boy!
That carol of wild sweet water
     Has washed the world with joy.

Glisten, O fragrant earth
     Assoiled by heaven anew,
And O, ye lovers, listen,
     With eyes that glisten, too.
