This question already has an answer here:
Many years ago, while in my earliest 20's, I read a short story that has haunted me since. I am 70 now, and keep looking for this one story. My husband had a small collection of paperback books featuring short sci-fi stories. All I can remember of this story was a man marooned on (Mars?). He was without food or water, and was dying because of this. He wandered into a long deserted city? settlement? seeking shade as well as food and water. There was a terrible noise, a clanging noise invading his senses. He found a room that had a low trough-like place. He suspected food had come from a faucet device attached to the trough. In his final weakness, he lay down in the trough and passed out. Then he came to, hearing glorious music where the awful, strident clanging noise had once been, and the trough he lay in delivered food to his waiting and upturned snout. So, in some way he was transformed by the planet, devices on the planet, something, to make him part of the society that used to be, and saved his life. Does ANYONE know the story I speak of?
