to the rain

    A real sense of resignation in this one.

    Of course, as a former British child, I immediately think of the Gunpowder Plot and the attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament, and of Guy Fawkes Day, penny for a Guy, bonfire night, and often raining or very cold at least.

    I am also often a lover of rain, and often rain comforts and shields me too:

    the rain
    almost a friend
    this funeral
