On this long storm the Rainbow rose

On this long storm the Rainbow rose

On this long storm the Rainbow rose
On this late Morn the Sun
The clouds like listless Elephants
Horizons straggled down

The Birds rose smiling, in their nests
The gales indeed were done
Alas, how heedless were the eyes
On whom the summer shone!

The quiet nonchalance of death
No Daybreak can bestir
The slow Archangel’s syllables
Must awaken her!
