Here you will find the Poem There will come Soft Rain of poet Sara Teasdale

There will come Soft Rain

There will come soft rain and the smell of the ground, 
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound; 

And frogs in the pools singing at night, 
And wild plum-trees in tremulous white; 

Robins will wear their feathery fire 
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire. 

And not one will know of the war, not one 
Will care at last when it is done. 

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree, 
If mankind perished utterly. 

And Spring herself when she woke at dawn, 
Would scarcely know that we were gone.
