Remembrance: Marcel Proust #42

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“A little tap at the window,
as though some missile
had struck it,
followed by a plentiful,
falling sound,
as light,
though, as if a shower
of sand were being
sprinkled from a window overhead;
then the fall spread,
took on an order,
a rhythm, became liquid,
loud, drumming, musical,
innumerable, universal.
It was the rain”
― Marcel Proust
