What is a summary of "How Beautiful Is The Rain" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Longfellow's poem is about the coming of rain in a draught or in a dry season. He heralds how the rain looks coming down in "fiery" streets and lanes. He tells of how it sounds as it "clatters" along dry rooftops and how it gushes out of dry, "choking" water spouts, tumbling down from the roofs. He speaks of how it clatters on the "window pane" while washing a "muddy tide" of accumulated dry dirt ahead of it. He ends by saying how welcome rain is to the plants on the plains: " How welcome is the rain!"
