Monotone

By Carl Sandburg

monotoneThe monotone of the rain is beautiful,
And the sudden rise and slow relapse
Of the long multitudinous rain.
.
The sun on the hills is beautiful, 
Or a captured sunset sea-flung, 
Bannered with fire and gold. 
.
A face I know is beautiful– 
With fire and gold of sky and sea, 
And the peace of long warm rain.
