The First Night Of Fall And Falling Rain Analysis



Author: poem of Delmore Schwartz Type: poem Views: 2

Sponsored Links



The common rain had come again

Slanting and colorless, pale and anonymous,

Fainting falling in the first evening

Of the first perception of the actual fall,

The long and late light had slowly gathered up

A sooty wood of clouded sky, dim and distant more and

    more

Until, at dusk, the very sense of selfhood waned,

A weakening nothing halted, diminished or denied or set

    aside,

Neither tea, nor, after an hour, whiskey,

Ice and then a pleasant glow, a burning,

And the first leaping wood fire

Since a cold night in May, too long ago to be more than

Merely a cold and vivid memory.

Staring, empty, and without thought

Beyond the rising mists of the emotion of causeless

    sadness,

How suddenly all consciousness leaped in spontaneous

    gladness,

Knowing without thinking how the falling rain (outside, all

    over)

In slow sustained consistent vibration all over outside

Tapping window, streaking roof,

                running down runnel and drain

Waking a sense, once more, of all that lived outside of us,

Beyond emotion, for beyond the swollen

                distorted shadows and lights

Of the toy town and the vanity fair

                of waking consciousness!
