  1. The theme of the poem Rain on the Roof is the poet’s memories and imagination which come up into his minds when he hears the sound of rain drops falling on the roof of his cottage. These memories are sweet as well as painful.

    The poet remembers his mother and the warmth of her love. She would used to kiss her children (including the poet) after they went to sleep. This memory makes the poet feel the same love of her mother. At the same time, he begins to miss her.

    In the poem, there is sorrow (melancholy darkness weeps in rainy tears) as well as joy (what a bliss to press the pillow). Hence the poem shows poet’s thoughts which flood his mind when he listens to the sound of rain droplets. These thoughts make him happy as well as sad.
