I

"Turn not from me;
I am the last rainbow that you may ever see.
Take the rich surprise
Of the skies
With all your eyes;
Dream from what labyrinths of bloom my wings arise. -- See,
Even a rainbow dies."

II

"You see me here,
And you huddle past and shiver;
One glance, you disappear,
Leaving me, a dull brown thicket, beside a gray-gorged river.
I beg no grace of yours;
You have seen me, I go with you, in or out of doors;
My thin blood will not wash out,
My purple brambles will mantle you about,
My thorny claspings pierce
Into your verse."
