The clouds look black, the glass is low,
The soot falls down, the spaniels sleep,
And spiders from their cobwebs peep.
Last night the sun went pale to bed,
The moon in halos hid her head;
The boding shepherd heaves a sigh,
For see, a rainbow spans the sky!
- the opening lines of Signs of Rain
I have seen this piece attributed to an anonymous poet, and I've also seen it attributed to various poets in various collections. Does anyone know the true author?
