Summary Poem The Rain WH DAVIES

SUMMARY

The poem offers denotative contrasts between the rain and the sun dark and light, high and low, rich and poor. The contrast of “despair” and “hope” makes the poem as artistic as didactic.

First of all, when rain falls on trees, millions of raindrops dangle from leaves. But the sun is not visible. It’s a gloomy, dark environment. The falling drops create “a sweet noise to hear”. The top leaves “drink” the rainwater first. They trickle down the rest of it to the lower leaves. This way the top leaves drop down the rain to the lower leaves. Furthermore, the rich take care of the poor.

As the rain stops, the sun comes out, it gives the scene a new life and luster. The “dark round drops” hanging from trees start twinkling in the sunlit surrounding. Though contrasting with the scene set by the rain, the sunlit sight is no less than beautiful. The poet suggests that care of the poor by the rich actually shatter the clouds of despair and make the sun of hope shine. As such, the poet has juxtaposed despair and hope by using rain and sun as metaphors for despair and hope respectively.

Optimistically, the poet says that poverty will end up and happiness will set in. In addition, the poem is embedded with picturesque quality, contrasts, comparisons, imagery, metaphors, melody and rhyme. The poem’s diction is simple.
