Carl Sandburg – Monotone

Carl Sandburg-Monotone

The monotone of the rain is beautiful,
And the sudden rise and slow relapse
Of 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.
