A description of the experience
THE END OF THE SUMMER
Out of a noonday sleep I woke :
The summer shower slashed at the
On every side the water broke
In cataracts from the jutting eaves.
Then the rain stopped; the sky grew bare;
The broad cloud dissolved in air.
Down the reed-curtain, one by one,
Creep the last drops, all golden-red
With fragments of the evening sun ;
And in the tree tops overhead
The shrill cicadas, loud and clear,
Cry of the autumn coming near.
