There Will Come Soft Rains
(War Time)
There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white,

Robins will wear their feathery fire
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

Take heart, old friend!

The old farts will be together at the end!​

    The year of her death bothered me, 1933.

    "In the Rain"

    I've seen the light in the rain
    Walking with the light down tunnels
    hearing whispers of beetles
    feeling no pain

    I've seen the light in the rain
    wandering tunnels of light
    feeling invincible has little pain

    I've seen the light in the rain
    I've held the children’s hands in the rain
    light swaying sweet and soft singing
    you have seen the light in the rain

    I've seen the light in the rain
    blue crystals at their sides aglow with promise
    Nimrod's Army marches in the valley
    feeling no pain.

    I've seen the light in the rain
    can the children see, will that ever be
    In the beginning was the word, He turned to me
    I've seen the light in the rain

    I've seen the light in the rain
    You have seen the sorrow in the rain
    Will you ever see the light in the rain
    bamboo and iron it's all the same
    Have you seen the light in the rain

    I have an opinion that I want to share. I am convinced that the so-called Apocalypse began about 200/230 years ago. I don't want to write a long and boring analysis of the book of Revelation, but it seems to me that many of the seals have already been opened, that many of the signs from heaven have already taken place, that the 4 horsemen have already been sent and that the persecution and almost total destruction of true spirituality by the Roman Empire / Catholic Church, has already occurred and also that the sacrifice of countless pure souls has already occurred and is continuing (wars, pedophilia, human sacrifices, false medicine, etc.). So, if I am right, we are in the period where all the truth is revealed from the roofs of houses (internet technology) and the opponent, whatever it is, will soon be thrown to the bottom of the well and tied up there for the next 1000 years.

    I'm probably missing something. What is the date relevance? And why have you stopped writing- do you mean posts here or irl? I trust all is well!
    I'm working on a little something. It's not much and is more of a question. The second question was answered in a PM.
    • And I was not paying attention I guess. Was thinking about 1833.
