Summary of the Poem "The Rain" written by William Henry Davies


The poem “The Rain” is written by W.H Davies who is a great lover of nature. This poem describes the natural sight of rain. The rain falls on top thick leaves. These thick leaves drink the rain water first and then pass the rain water drop after drop to the lower thin leaves. The top thick leaves symbolize rich people who enjoy most of the blessings but they give very little amount of alms to the poor. The beating of the rain drops against the thick leaves of tree produces a soft music. The poet feels happy to hear it. In the second stanza the poet says that when the rain stops the sun will come out from the clouds. It will illuminate everything including dark round drops of the rain. Its light will spread everywhere equally. This will create a beautiful and pleasant scene. Here, the poet hopes that the day will come when the painful differences between the rich and the poor will come to an end. There will be prevailed peace and equality in the society.
