Souls And Rain-Drops Light rain-drops fall and wrinkle the sea, Then vanish, and die utterly. One would not know that rain-drops fell If the round sea-wrinkles did not tell.
So souls come down and wrinkle life And vanish in the flesh-sea strife. One might not know that souls had place Werenâ€™t not for the wrinkles in life's face.
by Sidney Lanier (1842-1881)
