Fragrant Quote for June 6nd, 2012 from Wind-harp songs By John William Lloyd


THE SMELL OF RAIN-WET EARTH.

... THE smell of rain-wet earth upon the air,
And rose leaves, wet and flashing:
The fragrance floats me back, all unaware,—
I see that love-white face divinely fair
Again—and drooping head with braided hair—
Half know the fountain plashing,
The smell of rain-wet earth upon the air,
And rose leaves wet and flashing.
