After the Rain
Transcript of After the Rain
Bright is the air now
someone has hung diamonds in
the crumpled leaves lie wetly furled
where the wind has hurled them
this is the time the oriole turns
anxious for its flimsy nest,
but still its throat is sweet
above the fluttering in its breast.
The pools that divided the lawn
in miniature padifields
are dwindled to a winding Milky Way,
and there, beneath the fig tree
heavy with fruit
the ripe figs bloat
like scarlet pincushions on the pond.
Even the fish flash a more silvery scale
in the luscent water.
a detail that we clearly imagine through a writer's use of words that appeal to our senses - the sense of sight, hearing, smell, taste, or touch.
What are the effects of the rain on the following:
a. the leaves on the trees

To the broken gate down the road
a school boy comes
drenched to the skin
but with a gleam in his eye;
not knowing why.
The moon is reflected on the luscent waters.
The leaves from the trees lie furled on the ground
b. upside down
The flimsy nest is poorly built using light materials.
a. easily broken
He was so anxious about the scheduled auditions for the next day.
