Subject(s): Life; Love; Rainbows


Love is a rainbow that appears
When heaven's sunshine lights earth's tears.

All varied colors of the light
Within its beauteous arch unite:

There Passion's glowing crimson hue
Burns near Truth's rich and deathless blue;

And Jealousy's green lights unfold
'Mid Pleasure's tints of flame and gold.

O dark life's stormy sky would seem,
If love's clear rainbow did not gleam!
