Poem Inspiration : I'll Paint You A Rainbow

I'll Paint You A Rainbow

Grace E. Easley

I'll paint you a rainbow to hang on the wall,
to brighten your heart when the gray shadows fall,
On the canvas of joy outlasting the years,
with a soft brush of sweetness to dry all your tears.
I'll paint you a rainbow with colors of smiles
That glow with sincerity over the miles.
On a palette of words I will tenderly blend
Tones in treasures of sunlight and wind.

I'll paint the rainbow that reaches so wide,
Your sighs and your sorrows will vanish inside,
And deep in the center of each different hue,
A memory fashioned especially for you.
So lift up your eyes, for suspended above,
A rainbow designed by the fingers of love...


I choose the above poem by Grace E. Easly as a poem inspiration because of the inspirational lines in it. I am truly inspired and would love others to paint me a rainbow, too, when I am down in the gloom. Reading through the lines, each one touches my heart and I just love it.

My appreciation and credit go to Grace F. Easly  for this heart-touching poem. As we are allowed to share, so this is my pick which I would love to share with all of you. Please, check out this site for more inspirational poems that can perk up your day.


  1. It is a wonderful poem indeed. I really love the way the first line and the last line are closely tied to each other, wrapping up the poem so beautifully.

    "I'll paint you a rainbow to hang on the wall,
    to brighten your heart when the gray shadows fall." - It is the rainbow of love and happiness. A person with inner peace and happiness deals with and walk through the storm of life calmly.

    When I feel down in the dumps, I write my feelings in my blog, and words (comments) from fellow bloggers become the rainbow that cheers me up :)
