Monotone, by Carl Sandburg


    The monotone of the rain is beautiful,And the sudden rise and slow relapseOf 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. - Carl Sandburg
