The Little Rain (By Tu Fu) Oh, she is good, the little rain! and well she knows our need Who cometh in the time of spring to aid the sun-drawn seed; She wanders with a friendly wind Through silent nights unseen, The furrows feel her happy tears, and lo! The land is green. Last night cloud shadows gloomed The path that winds to my abode, And the torches of the river-boats Like angry meteors glowed. Today fresh colours break the soil, And butterflies take wing. Down broidered lawns all bright With pearls in the garden of the king. Questions : A. Poetic Devices 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
