The Rainbow

a poem by Kannan S R

Oh! Look at that rainbow,
The sight of which fills my heart with joy.
What an example of nature’s goodness!
Oh! Look at that rainbow.

It is really enthralling to see the rainbow,
It makes us forget our troubles and sorrow,
And transports us to a colourful heaven;
It is really enthralling to see a rainbow.

What is that beautiful rainbow?
Is it a bow to kill all evils?
Or is it a colourful river flowing across the sky?
What is that beautiful rainbow?

What is that beautiful rainbow?
Is it a multicolored ribbon holding the sky in place?
Or is it an arch for birds to enter the sky?
What is that beautiful rainbow?

Who designed that rainbow?
What perfect symphony of colours!
What a superb sight to behold!
Who designed that rainbow?

Does science have an answer for the rainbow?
Multiple refraction and internal reflection they say,
But I do not believe it as it affects the rainbow’s charm;
Does science have an answer for the rainbow?

Please do not try to answer the questions about the rainbow,
I was so awe-struck the words just flowed out of me,
The rainbow’s charm is unanswerable,
Please do not try to answer the questions about the rainbow.

Nature’s gift to mankind is the rainbow,
Let it remain the azurite’s enigma,
Then we can enjoy nature more,
Nature’s gift to mankind is the rainbow.
