so hot the afternoon

so afterwards we note returning fire
it is enough that we have seen the rain
that we were able then to ascertain
significance of what we could acquire
between that time and this you might inquire
about such things as would not seem so plain
and we would tell you what we saw again
but that would never fill your mind's desire
storm passes and the sun burns out this heart
those words inform us of no secret thought
just what we knew before you touched the door
and brought to us more proof of hidden art
by methods which are better left untaught
which touch each of us right down to the core
