I’m Just Searching for That Rainbow

I’m Just Searching for That Rainbow

double-rainbowHere’s a picture of double rainbows over the ocean while we wait on Spring, and a snip of an Emerson poem:


Yet whirl the glowing wheels once more,
And mix the bowl again;
Seethe, fate! the ancient elements,
Heat, cold, wet, dry, and peace, and pain.

Let war and trade and creeds and song
Blend, ripen race on race,
The sunburnt world a man shall breed
Of all the zones, and countless days.

No ray is dimmed, no atom worn,
My oldest force is good as new,
And the fresh rose on yonder thorn
Gives back the bending heavens in dew.

“Song of Nature” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
