Word Rainbows

Let's be thankful we are here today
Still another chance to make life better
Another card to hold and make a way
To bless and maybe comfort others

Another day to use the gift of writing
To give word rainbows to the world's skies
To touch and heal those who are hurting
Perhaps with words, wipe tears from their eyes.

    love the rainbow you've provided for me, cynthia! another poet provided me with the umbrella i needed earlier.
    i liked especially eyes/skies AND it seemed to me that, even though i don't SEE a rhyme in the first stanza, there WAS a nice rhyme in the first stanza! i can't figure out why it seemed that way, but i like it. thanks for sharing and for having kind thoughts. :) bri (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
