Treasure Island

Clarence Thomas


Oh Beautiful Rainbow


Feeling the setting sun burn against my back
I stood alone in grim anticipation
Watching the black sky roll inexorably toward me
But it was right then that you caught my eye
Oh beautiful Rainbow

Even though the endless horizon
Be Overshadowed in shades of gray
In your brilliance you stand out among it all
Bringing a small smile to my lips
Oh beautiful Rainbow

Your colors shine like a beacon of hope
Captivating me as I stand in awe of you
And though I couldn't perceive a light in the coming darkness
I could see you, and that was enough
Oh beautiful Rainbow

But Rainbows are something many have chased
And not one ever held their beauty in his hands
It was then with a bittersweet pang of my heart
I realized that you would never be
My beautiful Rainbow

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
