The Rainbow
written by Walter de la Mare
Songs of Childhood (1902), 1916 ed. Link to further information

I saw the lovely arch
        Of Rainbow span the sky,
The gold sun burning
        As the rain swept by.

In bright-ringed solitude
        The showery foliage shone
One lovely moment,
        And the Bow was gone.
