The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.

--Robert Louis Stevenson

North and South, one more time...

North and South again...

For Emilie---

Your voice

Calm and comforting,
with depth and passion, too:
I hear you and all is well.
Strong and steadying,
so certain and so true
your voice leads me;
all is well.
