poem 'Rain on the Roof,' which ha
passed permanently Into literature as
one of oar choicest elastics of lyric
verse. Printed In a country newspaper,
and subsequently In the school readers.
It at once sprang Into universal favor,
principally with school-children, who
loved to recite It and soon knew It by
