This poem is pretty special for me, he looks happy with the 'brightest bloom' though, at last, he discovers 'the flowers were not true'; like to other poem (birds) he looks very lonely, but not he has many lovers; the rain, the kettles, the flowers relieve his troubles.
Why all of us are not so happy, all of us can have the same lovers, reading his poetry.
Thomas said 'like me who have no love which this wild rain', now we can say how much you were not understood and how much hard were your life; but not, i ´d rather say the rain is the milk that feed your soul, for you I now it is enough.
Really e. thomas, with a few words, is expresing his life; he loves English landscape and he enjoyed how nature survive against artificial things or tools; in this way, tall nettles cover the rusty harrow; his life is a fight too, he looks a very nervous man fighting for the country he loves, so he write 'this corner of the farmyard I like most' to end with a few pleasure words' the sweetness of a shower;
His poems are a mixture of love for Eglish landscape and the nature life; his words, with sweetness adorn his passions.
