Before You the Rain

Before you the ancient rain
warmth on your back, you stand and think
how few the words
a man needs in life
You think of him who sees all this, and him
whose face is the wind, and the falling of the leaves, and rain
tapping the glass

.its so great poem

Roger Dale Hadden

I am an american who has been writing poetry since I was seven years old. I am also a fifty-six year  old Jewish{Orthodox} man whose sole inspiration in life here on earth is the Divine Promise that the Holy Creator has promised me by birthright and unyielding faith and service, a place of my own in the New Jerusalem. I loved every single line of this poem. I t reminds me of a poem of mine about a homeless man entitled Into The Rain. Great job with a capitol G. roger Dale Hadden.

According to English grammar line 5 should read "You think of him who sees all this, and him".

Thanks, we have updated our translation accordingly!
