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.
