After the rain


I wrote After the rain on a cool spring day while I lived in a boathouse on the River Thames in Berkshire. I was struck first by the pure rain falling on the murky water, and then by the sweet smell and freshness of the air once the rain had stopped. All seemed well with the world, as if things had been renewed.
