Poems Every Child Should Know by  Mary E. Burt


 

 

THE RAINBOW

[53]

Triumphal arch, that fills the sky

When storms prepare to part,

I ask not proud Philosophy

To teach me what thou art.


Still seem, as to my childhood's sight,

A midway station given,

For happy spirits to alight,

Betwixt the earth and heaven.


THOMAS CAMPBELL.
