She Was Like A Rainbow - Rainbow Girl - Poem by Della Perry

She was like a rainbow
A delight after a storm
Shimmering so elegantly
And vibrant against the backdrop of sky
Everyone gazing towards her magnificence
Delightful and dazzling like a summer bloom
But alas, gone too soon
For the arc of the rainbow
It slowly fades into the blue
Leaving us saddened, numb in the gloom.
She was like a rainbow
She shone so wonderfully, then
Faded and left us all behind.
Olivia, she will never be forgot.

    p.s. today i have read the poem and my earlier comment and your response to my comment. i wonder if you know that i would not have seen your response, Mrs. Pez, if i had not returned to this page. i don't seem to get notices of such responses otherwise.

    I am a teaching assistant, Olivia was a child I knew, I had taught her in different classes, family and friends know me as Mrs Pez or PoetryPez as my husband's nickname is Pezza for Perry xx Thanks for reading and commenting Bri, it is nice to share with other poets and get feedback. x
