And After That The Rain by Yehuda Amichai

Leonard Durso

And after all that–the rain.
When we learned to read the book of lingering
And the book of parting,
When our hair learned all the winds
And our sweet free hours
Are trained to run all around
In the ring of time.

After all that–the rain.
A big salty sea
Comes to us, stammering
Sweet and heavy drops.

And after all that–the rain.
See, we too
Pour down
To the one who receives us and doesn’t remember,
the spring earth.

Now here’s the interesting part. Recent studies suggest that our eyes can tell quite a lot about our personality. Scientists at Obero University conducted a small research on a bunch of 428 odd people to come to the conclusion that our eyes really are the window to our soul. Dr Anthony Fallone of Edinburgh University also found similar results. Hence, we decided to give you guys a look into yourself just by going with the colour of your eyes. Find out here:
