Poems That Every Child Should Know/The Rainbow (Campbell)

For works with similar titles, see The Rainbow.

The Rainbow.

Triumphal arch, that fills 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.

Thomas Campbell.
