I do not know whether the last two lines of the stanza are an exhortation to rain and clouds so as to give their water to the dried up earth, or if, on the other hand, this is just a description of what usually happens in that landscape. This is as follows:
"But the dry dust is all she brings to birth,
that child of clay by even celestial fire.
then come, soft rain and tender clouds, abate
this shining love that has the force of hate." Thanks a lot
