Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Chicago Poems.  1916.
 
92. Monotone
 
 
  THE MONOTONE of the rain is beautiful,
And the sudden rise and slow relapse
Of the long multitudinous rain.
 
  The sun on the hills is beautiful,
Or a captured sunset sea-flung,        5
Bannered with fire and gold.
 
  A face I know is beautiful—
With fire and gold of sky and sea,
And the peace of long warm rain.
