There Will Come Soft Rains "There Will Come Soft Rains" is a 12-line poem by Sara Teasdale in her collection Flame and Shadow, published in 1920 (see 1920 in poetry).

The poem also alludes to the idea of human extinction by war (lines 10 and 12), which was not a commonplace idea until the invention of nuclear weapons, 25 years later. The poem reads:
HyperEpos Responding to the lack of genre-based sites on the web, I've gathered here an array of sites focused on epic poetry, aiming for the occasionally quirky as well as the canonical vision of the genre. In addition to the links to individual poems and poets, I've tried to incorporate a few key sites for chronological study. Thus, links to sites like Perseus, The Labyrinth or Romantic Circles, with all their wealth of connections, are included at the bottom of the appropriate page.

CONDIVIDI - Google URL Shortener Posted by Michael Hermanto, Software Engineer, Firebase We launched the Google URL Shortener back in 2009 as a way to help people more easily share links and measure traffic online.

This design was inspired in January 2003 when I was washing my hands after a long day derigging Glasgows Christmas lights. I squirted some liquid soap onto my hands, and observed the way the pearl effect changed when I ran a finger through the puddle of soap. Wondering if it would work if the soap was suspended in water, I added some water to the soap in my hand and stirred it up.
