Her mind lives tidily, apart From cold and noise and pain, And bolts the door against her heart, Out wailing in the rain.

hi do you have a pdf version of w.s. merwin poetry? love your blog!
Hi anon!
First of all, thank you for the nice compliment. ❤︎ I'm glad you enjoy my blog!
Unfortunately, I don't have a pdf for "The Rain In The Trees" (I suspect you mean this poetry collection, because I'm currently reading it so I posted a lot of excerpts from it recently). However, there is a great website called archive.org where you can borrow this collection (and others!) for free up to 14 days (you just need to make an account). I only recently discovered this website myself and I'm so thrilled, because it's such a great resource! Here is the link to "The Rain In The Trees". If you only want to read some random poetry by Merwin, then "Poetry Foundation" is the place to go: link
I hope this answer will help you! Happy reading!

Lilacs blossom just as sweet Now my heart is shattered. (...) Lips that taste of tears, they say, are the best for kissing.

Even if you called I wouldn't hear you, and even if I heard I wouldn't turn, and even if I made that impossible gesture, your face would seem a stranger's face to me.

They lived within life. Pierced by that great wind. Condemned. Trapped from birth in departing bodies.
