Twofer Friday:

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 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.

Sara Teasdale

The Red Cockatoo

Sent as a present from Annam -
A red cockatoo.
Coloured like the peach-tree blossom,
Speaking with the speech of men.
And they did to it what is always done
To the learned and eloquent.
They took a cage with stout bars
And shut it up inside.

Anonymous (translated from the Chinese by Arthur Waley)

plus one:


He scowled at the barometer: "Will it rain?"
None heard, with all that pattering on the pane.
