Invisibly

In the beam of passing headlights,
the footpath glistens:
it rained, invisibly, before we came.

'rained, invisibly' - the precise words I sought and did not find a couple of days ago - well done, and thank you!

Great! And a good counter-example for those who preach adverb-avoidance at all costs.

What a magical scene that must have been. I love the idea of invisible rain.

Dave, I just, like, play here - no rules, except sometimes...
