Edward Thomas: Rain

A poem to compliment the recent weather that the UK has been experiencing! All of Edward Thomas' "war poems" were written in England, before he went to serve in France, so here we see the impact of the War on his mind rather than as a direct response to battle. Rain is deeply melancholic, a troubling poem by a troubled man who suffered from depression throughout his life.
