as gentle as

I once lived in a one-hundred-year home like this one, with clay tiles as roof, thick stone walls, a little wooden staircase to my mezzanine desk, and ancient plants.
Rain landing on clay is almost as gentle as on leaf.

J'ai entendu le fantôme aussi murmurer d'un tel moment de douces larmes sur terre battue - mes murs étaient près d'un mètre d'épaisseur et était resté pour 357 ans ... avait abrité toujours la ligne même famille dans laquelle j'ai été initié ... escalier en pierre à mon bureau grenier, - ma solitude complète ... la douceur - que la pluie connaissait la signification de ceci.
