1. Rainbow Like Our Life

       by Vijay Gupta

Rainbow like our life

Rainbow, rainbow, rainbow is in the sky.

Children were clapping & jumping with joy.

I also heard the roar and saw

the wonder of seven colour’s rainbow in the sky.

It was glowing & was giving coolness to our eyes.

Suddenly it was disappeared from the sky and

then I realize that the rainbow is like

the life of a human-being.

It’s colours are like the colours of our life.

Colours of life as joy, sadness,

Kindness, honesty, attraction, haterdness & love

are as the seven colours of a rainbow

And I realize that rainbow is just

like the life of a human being.

2. Inspired

       by Matthew Williamson

I’m continually inspired by nature, and

The rainbow is one of nature’s greatest optical phenomenon.

The sighting of a rainbow never fails

To bring a smile to people’s faces.

With them comes the sunshine after the rain.

3. The Rainbow Connection

       by Shauntae Taylor

The Rainbow Connection helped me find my way

The Rainbow Connection is the best may I say.

The Rainbow Connection is where dreams come true.

In this connection friends are true.

The Rainbow Connection, is where Fantasy becomes reality

And reality becomes actuality

Anyone can find the rainbow connection. You just have to

believe and forget what you know about reality.

4. Dark Clouds

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Think of your life and your darkest days

Nothing seems to work out, in any way

But there is always hope, we should not doubt

Say a prayer rather than pout.

When you see a rainbow realize the clouds before

Were dark ones and wet ones with no open door.

But then the rainbow appears and our hopes seem to soar

We know there is a God who loves us even more.

Rainbows are a symbol of hope and love

Sent to us from God above.

He sent the rainbow so we could see

Bad times will pass like the wind in the tree.

Encouraging us with hope and cheer

Realizing that God thinks of us as dear.

Look at that rainbow in the sky

Give thanks and know that God is nearby!

5. Without A Rainbow

       by Anonymous

When rain doesn’t stop

We need a rainbow

To fill the sky with its colours

Which signifies way is clear for light

Of different colours.

Varies which does in inviduality

That a rainbow has

Since such a rainbow you are

Of heart of mine

Which I needed when able I ain’t to look up

And face the world

As you hold the key to heart of mine

And that is why I call you Rainbow of My Life.

That glows when I appear faded

So you know now I am empty and drained

Without a rainbow like you.

6. When I Look at The Rainbow

       by Vincent G. Mead

Lord when I look at the Rainbow you have placed in sky so

blue, it reminds me that all your promises are true

Your Rainbow reminds me that those who believe on you

are few, yet you have called us your little Ewe

Lord when I look at the Rainbow I see it’s hue, it reminds

me that your love for us true

Your Rainbow in sky so blue, reminds me to keep praying


Lord when I look at the Rainbow it reminds me of your

promise to all of your creatures some of whom are of

different features

Your Rainbow and it’s many colors reminds me that it

represents some whom are called colored

Lord when I look at your Rainbow and see how it’s colors

are bright, it reminds me to do what is right

Your Rainbow I have never seen at night, this reminds me

to stay in the light

Lord when I look at your Rainbow it reminds me of your grief

because of our unbelief

Your Rainbow have no pot of gold, but your wonderful story

of love it has told

Lord when I Look at your Rainbow it reminds that you

promised to never again destroy the World with a flood

Your Rainbow to me is a sign of your love it represents

your Son’s life Blood

7. And Yet Another Dream

       by David Gerardino

Feel like dancing under a rainbow, feel like singing happy

songs, but my rainbow, no my rainbow, wont shine for me.

Feel like going to the ocean, building castle in the sand.

but my rainbow, my rainbow, wont shine for me.

8. Rainbow Season

       by Anonymous

When I first came to the city

the rainbow paint the sky

It’s in a little bus station

where I heard the rainbow song

a beautiful mother singing to her little three sons

And then rainbow shows day after day

with God telling me everything’s gonna be so right

Oh, beautiful rainbow, beautiful sign

just letting people feel right

It is in this rainbow season

that love fills friends’ hearts

some to express, some to hide

some to broadcast, some are shy

With the rainbow in the sky

You shouldn’t hide and you shouldn’t be shy

Nobody’s gonna laugh at your lovely lines

Oh, beautiful rainbow, beautiful sign

Forever having her by my side.

9. The Rainbow

       by Lillian E. Curtis

Oh, what a glorious sight it is,

When the sun is growing low,

To look far down in the west

And see the beauteous rainbow.

I love to look at the rainbow

Not merely because it is pretty to see,

But because it reminds me of God s promise

And all He has been to me.

At any time I love to see the rainbow,

But I think it by far a prettier sight,

And love to gaze at it longer

When ’tis growing nearly night.

It reminds me of something cheerful

The beautiful, beautiful rainbow;

And what a pretty sight it is

Just at night, when the sun is low.

Other subjects, than this, to write upon,

To me far easier seem,

And of this one I should not have thought,

But, for my mother’s dream.

Beautiful Rainbow Poems

Rainbows are a sight to behold, filling us with wonder and joy. Here are some poems about beautiful rainbow that capture the essence of this natural phenomenon.

1. Red, Yellow, Green and Blue

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Red, yellow, green, and blue

Across the sky, they give a clue

Sometimes turquoise and purple

Sometimes single and maybe a double.

They make us stop and pause with awe

The beauty of them drops our jaw

How brilliant is the sky

The beauty we can’t deny.

And at the end of the rainbow

We would like to follow

To see if there is a pot of gold

That is what we have been told.

Be thankful for the beauty of the sky

Rainbows and the clouds that float by

Take a moment, stop and look

It can change your outlook!

2. Dreams Color Rainbow

       by Anonymous

The rainbow of colors

So merry and bright

Each color has a purpose

Even black and white

The rainbow is so full

Of radiance and gleam

It sparkles and shines

Through every little beam

After a storm

A rainbow you’ll see

With all the glaring colors

A rainbow there’ll be

Then at the end

Your dream will come true

A pot of gold awaiting

All just for you.

3. The Rainbow

       by James Thomson

Moist, bright, and green, the landscape laughs around.

Full swell the woods; their every music wakes,

Mix’d in wild concert, with the warbling brooks

Increased, the distant bleatings of the hills,

And hollow lows responsive from the vales,

Whence, blending all, the sweeten’d zephyr springs.

Meantime, refracted from yon eastern cloud,

Bestriding earth, the grand ethereal bow

Shoots up immense; and every hue unfolds,

In fair proportion running from the red

To where the violet fades into the sky.

Here, awful Newton, the dissolving clouds

Form, fronting on the sun, thy showery prism;

And to the sage-instructed eye unfold

The various twine of light, by thee disclosed

From the white mingling maze. Not so the boy;

He wondering views the bright enchantment bend,

Delightful, o’er the radiant fields, and runs

To catch the falling glory; but amazed

Beholds th’ amusive arch before him fly,

Then vanish quite away.

4. Sweet Colors of Rainbow

       by Mula Veereswara Rao

I raised the elbow

I have seen the rainbow

It is the celebration of sky

My heart vibrates with joy

Rainbow happens on special moment

Busy life misses it in the speed movement

Waiting for rainbow,

In the raindrops Meadow,

Sky is not showing grace

Rainbow is not in trace

Rainbow with seven colors,

Appears to my beloved,

stays somewhere,

melts in the infinite sky!

Heart felts it’s gay

Rainbow is not mirage

It leaves image in my soul!

5. On This Long Storm the Rainbow Rose

       by Emily Dickinson

On this long storm the Rainbow rose—

On this late Morn—the Sun—

The clouds—like listless Elephants—

Horizons—straggled down—

The Birds rose smiling, in their nests—

The gales—indeed—were done—

Alas, how heedless were the eyes—

On whom the summer shone!

The quiet nonchalance of death—

No Daybreak—can bestir—

The slow—Archangel’s syllables

Must awaken her!

6. The Kingfisher

       by William Henry Davies

It was the Rainbow gave thee birth,

And left thee all her lovely hues;

And, as her mother’s name was Tears,

So runs it in my blood to choose

For haunts the lonely pools, and keep

In company with trees that weep.

Go you and, with such glorious hues,

Live with proud peacocks in green parks;

On lawns as smooth as shining glass,

Let every feather show its marks;

Get thee on boughs and clap thy wings

Before the windows of proud kings.

Nay, lovely Bird, thou art not vain;

Thou hast no proud, ambitious mind;

I also love a quiet place

That’s green, away from all mankind;

A lonely pool, and let a tree

Sigh with her bosom over me.

7. The Rainbow

       by Vine Colby

Whose doorway was it, in the sordid street,

That gave us shelter from the sudden rain, –

Two vagrant sparrows on a dripping branch,

Waiting a moment to spread wing again?

The beggar children danced through pavement pook

Barefoot and joyous, splashing at their will;

The rain washed green that dusty sycamore

And straws swirled wildly down the gutter’s rill.

Fast-breathing from the run, our hands still clasped.

We leaned out laughing, shaking free our hair

Of dewy drops, while still the clouds poured down

A freshness that made heavenly the air.

Then we both saw, above the sodden world.

The Rainbow like a miracle appear,

And you said, whispering, ” Oh, kiss me once

Before it fades! ” – Kiss me then quickly, Dear!”

One warm sweet touch of lips – then forth we went

Oblivious of all the rain and wet.

To-day I saw a rainbow after rain. . . .

My heart remembered then – does yours forget?

1. The Rainbow

       by Paula Glynn

I love the rainbow with its shades of green and blue,

I love the way the rainbow tells itself to you.

I love the way the rainbow lights up a sunny sky,

I love the way the rainbow tells of truths that are a lie.

I love the rainbow with its every brightly coloured shade,

I love the way the rainbow lights up a sunny day.

2. A Promise

       by Anonymous

A rainbow is a promise of:

sunshine after rain

3. The Rainbow Never Tells Me

       by Emily Dickinson

The rainbow never tells me

That gust and storm are by,

Yet is she more convincing

Than Philosophy.

My flowers turn from Forums—

Yet eloquent declare

What Cato couldn’t prove me

Except the birds were here!

4. Money Cannot Buy

       by Catherine Pulsifer

I never fail to be inspired

By the rainbow colors in the sky

They slowly do appear

Then their brilliance becomes so clear.

The simple things in life can be inspiring

If we just stop and start pondering

Money, riches cannot buy

A single rainbow in the sky!

5. My Heart Leaps Up

       by William Wordsworth

My heart leaps up when I behold

A rainbow in the sky:

So was it when my life began;

So is it now I am a man;

So be it when I shall grow old,

Or let me die!

The Child is father of the Man;

And I could wish my days to be

Bound each to each by natural piety.

6. Promise

       by Anonymous

There is a rainbow in the sky,

Upon the arch where tempests trod;

God wrote it ere the world was dry

It is the autograph of God.

7. The Rainbow

       by Emilie Poulsson

Magical, magical weather

When sunshine and rain meet together!

They weave of the drops and the radiance soft

A glorious rainbow that arches aloft,

A rainbow whose wonderful colors amaze,

A shimmering rainbow that fades as we gaze.

Long Rainbow Poems

This section contains long rainbow poetry that explores the beauty of the spectrum of colors. It celebrates the joy and hopes that a rainbow brings and the many emotions it can evoke.

1. The Rainbow

       by Charles Lamb

After the tempest in the sky

How sweet yon rainbow to the eye!

Come, my Matilda, now while some

Few drops of rain are yet to come,

In this honeysuckle bower

Safely sheltered from the shower,

We may count the colours o’er.-

Seven there are, there are no more;

Each in each so finely blended,

Where they begin, or where are ended,

The finest eye can scarcely see.

A fixed thing it seems to be;

But, while we speak, see how it glides

Away, and now observe it hides

Half of its perfect arch-now we

Scarce any part of it can see.

What is colour? If I were

A natural philosopher,

I would tell you what does make

This meteor every colour take:

But an unlearned eye may view

Nature’s rare sights, and love them too.

Whenever I a rainbow see,

Each precious tint is dear to me;

For every colour find I there,

Which flowers, which fields, which ladies wear:

My favourite green, the grass’s hue,

And the fine deep violet-blue,

And the pretty pale blue-bell,

And the rose I love so well,

All the wondrous variations

Of the tulips, pinks, carnations,

This woodbine here both flower and leaf.

‘Tis a truth that’s past belief,

That every flower and every tree,

And every living thing we see,

Every face which we espy,

Every cheek and every eye,

In all their tints, in every shade,

Are from the rainbow’s colours made.

2. The Place Where the Rainbow Ends

       by Paul Laurence Dunbar

There’s a fabulous story

Full of splendor and glory,

That Arabian legends transcends;

Of the wealth without measure,

The coffers of treasure,

At the place where the rainbow ends.

Oh, many have sought it,

And all would have bought it,

With the blood we so recklessly spend;

But none has uncovered,

The gold, nor discovered

The spot at the rainbow’s end.

They have sought it in battle,

And e’en where the rattle

Of dice with man’s blasphemy blends;

But howe’er persuasive,

It still proves evasive,

This place where the rainbow ends.

I own for my pleasure,

I yearn not for treasure,

Though gold has a power it lends;

And I have a notion,

To find without motion,

The place where the rainbow ends.

The pot may hold pottage,

The place be a cottage,

That a humble contentment defends,

Only joy fills its coffer,

But spite of the scoffer,

There’s the place where the rainbow ends.

Where care shall be quiet,

And love shall run riot,

And I shall find wealth in my friends;

Then truce to the story,

Of riches and glory;

There’s the place where the rainbow ends.

3. To the Rainbow

       by Thomas Campbell

Triumphal arch, that fill’st 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.

Can all that optics teach unfold

Thy form to please me so,

As when I dreamed of gems and gold

Hid in thy radiant bow?

And yet, fair bow, no fabling dreams,

But words of the Most High,

Have told why first thy robe of beams

Was woven in the sky.

When o’er the green, undeluged earth

Heaven’s covenant thou didst shine,

How came the world’s gray fathers forth

To watch thy sacred sign!

And when its yellow lustre smiled

O’er mountains yet untrod,

Each mother held aloft her child

To bless the bow of God.

Methinks, thy jubilee to keep,

The first-made anthem rang

On earth, delivered from the deep,

And the first poet sang.

The earth to thee her incense yields,

The lark thy welcome sings,

When, glittering in the freshened fields,

The snowy mushroom springs.

How glorious is thy girdle cast

O’er mountain, tower, and town,

Or mirrored in the ocean vast,

A thousand fathoms down!

As fresh in yon horizon dark,

As young thy beauties seem,

As when the eagle from the ark

First sported in thy beam.

For, faithful to its sacred page,

Heaven still rebuilds thy span;

Nor lets the type grow pale with age,

That first spoke peace to man.

4. Look for The Rainbows

       by Trina Graves

Storms come into our lives

Some mighty, others small

As a metaphor, or weather

‘This too shall pass,’ we recall

For no storm lasts forever

There will be a brighter day

Keep Hope and Faith at Heart

Aligned with Positivity, stay

But, even storms have rainbows

Depicting colour and Light

A symbol of Hope we can see

When we look up to the sight

Raising our eyes and our Spirit

A simple, beautiful thing

To the young and the old alike

It makes all our Hearts sing

We all know of the tales

For centuries have been told

At the end of a rainbow

You’ll find a pot of gold

Of course, this is nonsense

If you perceive it literally

But gold is not the only treasure

We all know this instinctively

The storm raging all around

Our world in 2020

Bringing chaos and fear

We can all clearly see

The children, our treasures

Are showing us the way

To look through it all

With Hope’s colourful ray

Making their own rainbows

And sticking to their window

Sharing in Unity, at home

The streets are all aglow

Isolated, but coming together

In a simple, yet joyous way

The children, our teachers

Of tomorrow and today

Our world is constantly changing

At a great speed right now

If we open our Heart and mind

We can perceive in Truth just how

Compassion and beauty abound

Flowing even through all the dread

We will rise and be Pure Sovereign

No matter what is being said

We have reached the apex

In our world of duality

Now Love and Light is here

To bring Peace, our destiny

Rainbows will now be seen

More magnificent than ever before

Even without storm or rain

A symbol of Light forever more

Look for the rainbows

All of the children have made

Adorning their place of sanctuary

As at home they’ve all stayed

Look for the rainbows

We shall see in our skies

Heaven becoming closer

As we see through all of the lies

5. The Rainbow

       by Felicia Hemans

Soft falls the mild, reviving shower

From April’s changeful skies,

And rain-drops bend each trembling flower

They tinge with richer dyes.

Soon shall their genial influence call

A thousand buds to day,

Which, waiting but their balmy fall,

In hidden beauty lay.

E’en now full many a blossom’s bell

With fragrance fills the shade;

And verdure clothes each grassy dell,

In brighter tints arrayed.

But mark! what arch of varied hue

From heaven to earth is bowed?

Haste, ere it vanish, haste to view

The Rainbow in the cloud.

How bright its glory! there behold

The emerald’s verdant rays,

The topaz blends its hue of gold

With the deep ruby’s blaze.

Yet not alone to charm thy sight

Was given the vision fair;–

Gaze on that arch of colored light,

And read God’s mercy there.

It tells us that the mighty deep,

Fast by th’ Eternal chained,

No more o’er earth’s domains shall sweep,

Awful and unrestrained.

It tells that seasons, heat and cold,

Fixed by his sovereign will,

Shall, in their course, bid man behold

Seed-time and harvest still;

That still the flower shall deck the field,

When vernal zephyrs blow;

That still the vine its fruit will yield,

When autumn sun-beams glow.

Then, child of that fair earth! which yet

Smiles with each charm endowed,

Bless thou His name, whose mercy set

The Rainbow in the cloud!

6. The Rainbow

       by Anonymous

I sometimes have thought in my loneliest hours,

That lie on my heart like the dew on the flowers,

Of a ramble I took one bright afternoon,

When my heart was as light as a blossom in June.

The green earth was moist with the late fallen showers;

The breeze fluttered down and blew open the flowers;

While a single white cloud to its haven of rest,

On the white wing of peace floated off in the west

As I threw back my tresses to catch the cool breeze

That scattered the raindrops and dimpled the seas,

Far up the blue sky a fair rainbow unrolled

Its soft-tinted pinions of purple and gold.

‘Twas born in a moment, yet, quick as its birth,

It has stretched to the uttermost ends of the earth;

And, fair as an angel, it floated all free,

With a wing on the earth and a wing on the sea.

How calm was the ocean! how gentle its swell!

Like a woman’s soft bosom, it rose and it fell;

While its light sparkling waves, stealing laughingly o’er,

When they saw the fair rainbow, knelt down to the shore.

No sweet hymn ascended, no murmur of prayer,

Yet I felt that the spirit of worship was there,

And bent my young head in devotion and love

‘Neath the form of the angel that floated above.

How wide was the sweep of its beautiful wings!

How boundless its circle! how radiant its rings!

If I looked on the sky, ’twas suspended in air;

If I looked on the ocean, the rainbow was there;

Thus forming a girdle as brilliant and whole

As the thoughts of the rainbow that circled my soul;

Like the wing of the Deity, calmly unfurled,

It bent from the cloud, and encircled the world.

There are moments, I think, when the spirit receives

Whole volumes of thought on its unwritten leaves;

When the folds of the heart in a moment unclose,

Like the innermost leaves from the heart of a rose;

And thus, when the rainbow had passed from the sky,

The thoughts it awoke were too deep to pass by;

It left my full soul like the wing- of a dove,

And fluttering with pleasure, and fluttering with love.

I know that each moment of rapture or pain

But shortens the links in life’s mystical chain;

I know that my form, like that bow from the wave,

May pass from the earth and lie cold in the grave;

Yet oh! when death’s shadows my bosom uncloud,

When I shrink from the thought of the coffin and shroud,

May Hope, like the rainbow, my spirit unfold

In her beautiful pinions of purple and gold.

1. When You See A Rainbow

       by Catherine Pulsifer

When you see a rainbow

The colors they do show

They blend together so

Some even seem to glow.

The first rainbow to appear

Was brilliant and so clear

It was God’s promise of no more rain

A promise that still remains.

God’s promises hold true

To this day they continue.

So when a rainbow you do see

Thank God and happy be!

2. The Rainbows

       by James Baldwin

Out of water, clear and white,

Who has built a bridge so bright?

Light the fairy arches rise,

Tinted with their glowing dyes—

Gold and red and azure blue,

Like the sunset’s rarest hue.

Right against the dusky sky

Shines the path-way, fair and high,

From the valley, cool and green,

Where the floating mists are seen,

To the mountain far away

In the distance, dim and gray.

Busy fancies, strange and sweet,

Throng the bridge with fairy feet,

Crossing to the wondrous land

 There the cloudy castles stand;

Till the gray mists slowly fall

Like a curtain over all!

3. Time for Rainbows

       by Catherine Pulsifer

If you are looking for a pot of gold

You could end up working until you are very old

But you would be missing the joys of life and perhaps feel some sorrow

As you must make time to see the colors in the rainbow.

Life goes by so very fast,

No matter what we do it will not last.

The same is true of the rainbow colors for

They disappear and you see them no more.

So work hard but also allow

Time for the little things that give you a wow.

Rainbows can be seen by those who

Focus on living a life with balance, that’s true!

4. Trace the Rainbow Through the Rain

       by George Matheson

Love that wilt not let me go,

I rest my weary soul in Thee;

I give Thee back the life I owe,

That in Thine ocean depths its flow

May richer, fuller be.

O Light that followest all my way,

I yield my flickering torch to Thee;

My heart restores its borrowed ray,

That in Thy sunshine’s blaze its day

May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain,

I cannot close my heart to Thee;

I trace the rainbow through the rain,

And feel the promise is not vain

That morn shall tearless be.

5. Beautiful Rainbow

       by Sarah Hale

O beautiful rainbow – all woven of light!

There’s not in thy tissue one shadow of night:

Heaven surely is open when thou dost appear;

And, bending above thee, the angels draw near

And sing, – The rainbow! the rainbow!

The smile of God is here.

6. Look for Rainbows

       by Catherine Pulsifer

Yellow, blue, orange, and red

Are the colors overhead

When after the rain does end

A rainbow God does send.

In your life look for the rainbows

No matter the challenges and lows

They are there waiting for you

Keep moving forward, don’t be blue.

Storms we all face

But keeping moving with grace

You will see your rainbow appear

The storm will be over and the sky will clear.

7. Rainbow Bridge

       by Steve and Diane Bodofsky

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,

Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,

Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,

Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,

And then, side-by-side, they cross over together.

1. The Colors of the Rainbow

       by Xyomara Knowles

Red, orange, yellow and blue, green, purple and

indigo too. The colors of the rainbow. The colors of

the rainbow. Red, orange, yellow and blue, green,

purple and indigo too. The colors of the rainbow.

The colors of the rainbow.

The rain makes everything dark and grey. It makes

everything wet and ruins our day. But after the rain

comes a shining light. It shines in the sky so very

bright. The colors of the rainbow. The colors of the


I am made through light and water. Those are my

colors of the rainbow. The colors of the rainbow.

People are so very similar to colors. We are so

beautiful on our own. But when we all come

together to be as one, we create something more

wonderful than anyone has ever known.

2. Play With Rainbow

       by Syed Karim

Play with Rainbow, wear the Rainbow

Ride the Rainbow high and low

Spread the color of Rainbow wherever you go

Paint with Rainbow, create a magnificent show

Share Rainbow with neighbor, family and friend

Give the needy a helping hand, reach out and extend

Dance with Rainbow, sing with Rainbow

Let the Rainbow shine through

Rainbow comes from Sun Shine and rain seven colors true

It paints the sky with seven colors and dazzling hue

It bridges the Earth and the beyond for a short moment

Arched, end to end, never changes, same as past and present

I wonder if there is Rainbow in the other world

Where we go when we pass on

Is there day, night or dawn

What is a Rainbow, how it is born

I can sing a rainbow

Sing a rainbow

Sing a rainbow too

1. Look for Me in Rainbows

       by Conn Bernard

Time for me to go now, I won’t say goodbye;

Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.

In the morning sunrise when all the world is new,

Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Time for me to leave you, I won’t say goodbye;

Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky.

In the evening sunset, when all the world is through,

Just look for me and love me, and I’ll be close to you.

It won’t be forever, the day will come and then

My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.

Time for us to part now, we won’t say goodbye;

Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky.

Every waking moment, and all your whole life through

Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Just wish me to be near you,

And I’ll be there with you.

2. Rainbows on the Moon

       by Michael Ashby, Sidmouth

There are rainbows on the moon

There are clouds in outer space

The night has started mourning

Since I passed away too soon

There are rainbows on the moon

There are colours crying in tiers

The solar wind is wailing

Since I passed away too soon

I shine with the Northern Lights

I shine with the waning moon

I shine with the shooting stars

Since I passed away too soon

Now one zillion candles

Are shining all around me

One zillion and one candles

For my life on earth to see
