Here you will find the Poem We to Sigh Instead of Sing of poet James Whitcomb Riley
"Rain and Rain! and rain and rain!" Yesterday we muttered Grimly as the grim refrain That the thunders uttered: All the heavens under cloud -- All the sunshine sleeping; All the grasses limply bowed With their weight of weeping. Sigh and sigh! and sigh and sigh! Never end of sighing; Rain and rain for our reply -- Hopes half-drowned and dying; Peering through the window-pane, Naught but endless raining -- Endless sighing, and, as vain, Endlessly conmplaining. Shine and shine! and shine and shine! Ah! to-day the splendor!-- All this glory yours and mine -- God! but God is tender! We to sigh instead of sing, Yesterday in sorrow, While the lord was fashioning This for our To-morrow!
