Rain knows well the tree, the road
the gutter too-their voices can be distinguished :
and you can hear them too, even when you close the door
and window. Even when you dim the light.
Rain, who really can distinguished between them, has fallen
on the tree, the road and the gutter-
casting a spell so that you have no chance at all to protest
when you find the revelation that you may not reveal
