My heart is like a singing bird Whose nest is in a water'd shoot; My heart is like an apple-tree Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit; My heart is like a rainbow shell That paddles in a halcyon sea; My heart is gladder than all these, Because my love is come to me.
Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.lord byron
Look, look, look to the rainbow Follow it over the hill and stream Look, look, look to the rainbow Follow the fellow who follows the dream.
For coloured girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf.Ntozake Shange
The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be he any color of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentments right into a jury box. As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it — whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.harper lee
Beauty in this Iron Age must turn From fluid living rainbow shapes to torn And sootened fragments, ashes in an urn On whose gray surface runes are traced by a Norn Who hopes to wake the Future to arise In Phoenix -fashion, and to shine with rays To blast the sight of modern men whose dyes Of selfishness and lust have stained our days...philip josé farmer
Somewhere over the rainbow , Way up high There's a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby. Somewhere over the rainbow Skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true .yip harburg
Somewhere over the rainbow Way up high, There's a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby.E(dgar) Y(ip) Harburg
The dark notes rose everywhere, so dark, so sombre, they broke into a fountainlight as the rainbow sparkling and immaterial as invisible sources and echoes. The savannahs grew lonelyas the sea and broke again into a wave and forest. Tall trees with black marching boots and feet were clad in the spurs and sharp wings of a butterfly.Rolf Harris
I wanted to believe, and I tried my damnedest to believe, in the rainbow I tried to get over, and I couldn't! … So what? Lots of people can't!judy garland
Truth does not require your painting, brother; it is itself beauty. Unfold it, and men will be captivated. Take your brush to set off the rainbow, or give a new tinge of splendor to the setting sun, but keep it away from the "Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley."thomas david
Along a parabola life like a rocket flies,Mainly in darkness, now and then on a rainbow.andrey voznesensky
Some day I'll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemondrops Away above the chimney tops, That's where you'll find me. Somewhere over the rainbow Bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow, Why then, oh why can't I?yip harburg
On the day I was born, Said my father, said he I've an elegant legacy waiting for ye. Tis a rhyme for your lips And a song for your heart To sing it whenever the world falls apart. Look, look, look to the rainbow Follow it over the hill and stream Look, look, look to the rainbow Follow the fellow who follows a dream .yip harburg
We look through gloom and storm-drift Beyond the years: The soul would have no rainbow Had the eyes no tears.
A flash of harmless lightning, A mist of rainbow dyes, The burnished sunbeams brightening From flower to flower he flies.
ye and I might meet with joy up in the rainbow
You've got that rainbow feel, but the rainbow has a beard
I'm a high night flier and a rainbow rider And a straight-shooting son of a gun.
And, lo! in the dark east, expanded high, The rainbow brightens to the setting Sun.james beattie
Some day I'll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemondrops Away above the chimney tops, That's where you'll find me. Somewhere over the rainbow Bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow, Why then, oh why can't I?
God loves an idle rainbow, No less than laboring seas .Ralph Hodgson
The idea of immortality, that like a sea has ebbed and flowed in the human heart , with its countless waves of hope and fear , beating against the shores and rocks of time and fate, was not born of any book , nor of any creed, nor of any religion . It was born of human affection, and it will continue to ebb and flow beneath the mists and clouds of doubt and darkness as long as love kisses the lips of death . It is the rainbow Hope shining upon the tears of grief .
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 !
We of many cultures, languages and races are become one nation. We are the rainbow People of God.
In the face of the sun are great thunderbolts hurled, And the storm - clouds have shut out its light ; But a rainbow of Promise now shines on the world , And the universe thrills at the sight .
