Christina Rossetti – The Rainbow

Christina RossettiChristina Georgina Rossetti (December 05, 1830 – December 29, 1894)

Boats sail on the rivers,
And ships sail on the seas;
But clouds that sail across the sky
Are prettier far than these.
There are bridges on the rivers,
As pretty as you please;
But the bow that bridges heaven,
And overtops the trees,
And builds a road from earth to sky,
Is prettier far than these.
