    And who art thou? said I to the soft-falling shower,
    Which, strange to tell, gave me an answer, as here translated:
    I am the Poem of Earth, said the voice of the rain,
    Eternal I rise impalpable out of the land and the bottomless sea,
    Upward to heaven, whence, vaguely form’d, altogether changed, and
    yet the same,
    I descend to lave the drouths, atomies, dust-layers of the globe,
    And all that in them without me were seeds only, latent, unborn;
    And forever, by day and night, I give back life to my own origin,
    and make pure and beautify it;
    (For song, issuing from its birth-place, after fulfilment, wandering,
    Reck’d or unreck’d, duly with love returns.)

    “The Voice of the Rain”
    – Walt Whitman
