by Marguerite Radclyffe-Hall (1880 - 1943)

The rainbow‑child
Language: English 
The sunshine met the stormwind
As he swept across the plain,
And she wooed him till he lov’d her,
And his kisses fell as rain.

She was fair, and he was ardent.
And behold! one happy morn,
While I watched their mingled glory,
Lo! a rainbow child was born!
