    Beatles Related - Stuart Sutcliffe "Rain" Handwritten Poem. Stu Sutcliffe's time in the Beatles was short, but his influence, particularly on John, was enormous. These three 4.5" x 7.5" memo book pages feature a poem titled "Rain" handwritten by Sutcliffe in black ink, with the title and credit "Sutcliffe" written by him in blue ink. According to one of Stuart's sisters, it was written by him circa 1954-55. It reads in part: "The end. The lamp appears/All radiant bright, and clears/away our worries, with a smile/of warmth, for the washer. While/our window's shine/in cleanliness pure, and Divine." The pages are in Fine to Very Fine condition with some overall toning and edge wear, but no creases, tears, or other major defects. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.
