The Voice of the Rain

And who art thou? said I to the soft-falling shower,
Which, strange to tell, gave me an answer, as here translated:
I am the Poem of Earth, said the voice of the rain,
Eternal I rise impalpable out of the land and the bottomless sea,
Upward to heaven, whence, vaguely form'd, altogether changed, and
yet the same,
I descend to lave the drouths, atomies, dust-layers of the globe,
And all that in them without me were seeds only, latent, unborn;
And forever, by day and night, I give back life to my own origin,
and make pure and beautify it;
(For song, issuing from its birth-place, after fulfilment, wandering,
Reck'd or unreck'd, duly with love returns.)

- Walt Whitman

I feel a very strong attachment to this song, I've never made anything like it. I composed it in the rain, I think it reflects all the emotions I've been feeling lately. It took only 2 days to make, everything just came to me, it's almost as if it wrote itself. I'm still in disbelief that I created it.

Rain/thunder/birds samples are from

Thanks F-777 for helping me brainstorm a title. I happened to find this poem when googling my prospective title, I decided to dedicate the song to it.

Good track

It's a good track. The atmosphere it creates is great.
I like the sound samples you used throughout the track. At first we can hear some birds chirping, it seems as if it is a nice and warm day. But the music already foreshadows that there's a storm coming.

Later we can hear the rain falling, the music now creates an almost sad atmosphere. As if the rain doesn't bring relief and doesn't wash away all the sorrow... but it carries sorrow with it.
This impression is strengthened by the fact that we still can hear the rain fall even though the music already faded away.

The ending may be a bit too long though. Or the sound of the falling rain is too low. Maybe it would work better if you not only fade out the music, but also fade in the rain sounds at the same time, so that it seems as if the rain outpowers the music in the end.
