To Catch A Rainbow

In time of silver rain
The earth puts forth life again ,
Green grasses grow
And flowers lift their heads,
And over all the plain
The wonder spreads

Of life,
Of Life,
Of Life!

In time of silver rain
The butterflies lift silken wings,
To catch a rainbow cry,
And trees put forth new leaves to sing
In joy beneath the sky
As down the roadway
Passing boys and girls
Go singing too,

In time of silver rain when spring
And life
Are new.
- Langston Hughes
