There Will Come Soft Rains

Music by Sara Teasdale

"There Will Come Soft Rains" is a 12-line poem by Sara Teasdale. The work was first published in the July 1918 issue of Harper's Magazine, and later included in her 1920 collection Flame and Shadow[2] (see 1920 in poetry). The poem imagines nature reclaiming a battlefield after the fighting is finished. The poem also alludes to the idea of human extinction by war (lines 10 and 12), which was not a commonplace idea until the invention of nuclear weapons, 25 years later.

The music for this setting of Teasdale's poem highlights the tension in the text between the beauty of nature and the violence human beings inflict on themselves. In the closing measures of the piece, the composer restates the opening line of the text to reinforce the cyclical patterns in nature: despite humanity's penchant toward violence, the rain will come and spring will begin again.
