She Came Through The Mist & The Rain
  • Here’s a short video of my transcribing an obscure but beautiful passage written by a little-know writer named Arthur Symons (1865–1945), in a poem called “Rain On The Down.”

    NIGHT, and the down by the sea,
    And the veil of rain on the down;
    And she came through the mist and the rain to me
    From the safe warm lights of the town.

    The rain shone in her hair,
    And her face gleam’d in the rain;
    And only the night and the rain were there
    As she came to me out of the rain.



About The Author

I was born and raised in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. I've worked as a short-order cook, construction laborer, crab fisherman, janitor, bartender, pedi-cab driver, copyeditor, and more. I've written and ghostwritten several published books and articles, but no matter where I've gone or what I've done to earn my living, there's always been literature and learning as the constant in my life.

    The softer side of Ray. Said with endearment.

  • Thank you, Ophelia.
