Poem Title:  Oh, If That Rainbow Up There

Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  Ethel Turner

Poet Biography: 
Ethel Turner (1890-1973) was an Australian Poet



Poem: 
Oh, if that rainbow up there, Spanning the sky past the hill, Slenderly, tenderly fair Shining with colours that thrill, Oh, if that rainbow up there, Just for a moment could reach Through the wet slope of the air here where i stand on the beach! Here where the waves wash the strand, Swing itself lovingly low, Let me catch fast with one hand, Climb its frail rigging and go. Climb its frail rigging and go? Where is its haven of rest? Out in the gleam and the glow of the blood-red waves of the West? or where the isles of the dawn Lie on an amethyst sea, Does it drift, pale and forlorn, ghost of the glory I see? Is there, ah, is there a land Such as the Icelanders say, Or past the west's ruddy strand or on the edge of the day, Some undiscovered clime seen through a cloud's sudden rift, Where all the rainbows of time slowly and silently drift? Some happy port of a sea never a world's sail has made, where till the earth shadows flee Never a rainbow may fade. Oh, if that rainbow up there, Just for a moment would reach, Through the wet slope of the air Here where I stand on the beach. Here where the waves wash the strand swing itself lovingly low, Let me catch fast with one hand, Climb its frail rigging and go!
