Rainbow Poems

Popular Rainbow Poems
by Alexander Smith

ON the Sabbath-day,
   Through the churchyard old and gray,
Over the crisp and yellow leaves I held my rustling way;
And amid the words of mercy, falling on my soul like balms,
'Mid the gorgeous storms of music--in the mellow organ-calms,
'Mid the upward-streaming prayers, and the rich and solemn psalms,
   I stood careless, Barbara.

   My heart was otherwhere,
   While the organ shook the air,

The Creation
by James Weldon Johnson

And God stepped out on space,
And he looked around and said:
I'm lonely--
I'll make me a world.

And far as the eye of God could see
Darkness covered everything,
Blacker than a hundred midnights
Down in a cypress swamp.

When The Lamp Is Shattered
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

When the lamp is shattered,
The light in the dust lies dead;
When the cloud is scattered,
The rainbow's glory is shed;
When the lute is broken,
Sweet tones are remembered not;
When the lips have spoken,
Loved accents are soon forgot.

As music and splendor

The Road Of Life
by Homer Harris

Every body wants their life to be
Sunny skies and rainbows.
but they fail to realize where the
sun always shines there is no water below.
And they need a little rain to get the rainbow.
So as you travel on the road of life remember this.
There will be times that it's rough and
times that it's smooth, and sometimes you win.
Sometimes you lose.
Everybody wants their life to be a bed of roses

Very Pur-plexing
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was an enthusiastic painter, striving to apply more verve and color,
Like sunshine dreams, of blue-gray days, that couldn't be any duller.

Painting had for long been my passion, but had turned into a career,
Like the splashy sunset evenings, when blue stars magically appear.

I had sold many of my artworks, and had also held some exhibitions,
People admired my use of colors, its liberal use, with few inhibitions.

My mother was a prominent artist, and I'd followed in her footsteps,

Rainbow Girl
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was an irrepressible and happy young woman, and graceful ballet dancer,
Who lived for twirling on a world stage, as red berries are shrub laughter!

I had practiced for so many years, striving to become the best of the best,
Like the untold luminous stars, that put the tranquil nighttime to the test.

At last I was enjoying the sweetness of success, like the bird newly flown,
Tasting the first ecstasy of freedom, and being able to make it on my own.

Unfailing sun wore its gilded smile, and creamy stars winked all night long,

Variegated Stripes
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Parallel colors go on forever, others swirling and merging,
Hued rainbows and smoky sunsets, from a chaos surging!
Hanging from the Christmas tree, ruby peppermint candy,
And circus clowns entertain us, attired so gaily and badly.

Often seen on animals, birds, leaves and even mountains,
Coloring all the days of our lives, from mystical fountains!
Arrayed all in purple stripes, the mischievous joker is wild,
Sharing this streaked world where very nature has smiled.

Polka Dot Rainbow
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

when sunshine emerged
a polka dot rainbow flared
above green treetops

things were looking up
all the colors coming down
children chased balloons

many-hued nature
has unending surprises
