A Metaphysical Poem: The Rain

As an exercise for Literature, we were asked to attempt to describe the rain using metaphors and arranging it into verse, as is done with metaphysical poetry. My conceit for this piece was that rain inspires a writer.

The Rain

If the drenchèd soul is thus turned to grey,

It doth inspire; an ideal ray

Shades of black liken to shades of white,

And they let the soul inspirèd take flight

And into the light the said soul doth fly

Idea returned and not let pass by.

Welcome to The Dark Corner of the Mind. My name is Ryan Sullivan and my aim with this blog is to help others with their own writing, as well as to make note of some of my own writing endeavours.

Here at The Dark Corner, Real Life is both our best friend and our worst enemy. Look to him for inspiration, but don't let him get in the way too much.

If he does, bribe him with cookies.
