The Rainbow comes and goes (verse two). There's a definite sense of nonchalance in viewing the "Rainbow" as it merely "comes and goes," where as in the former poem, his "heart leaps up" at the sight of the "Rainbow." The last three lines of the "Ode" further Wordsworth's view "that there hath past away a glory from the earth," or possible Original Sin as spoken of in the Bible. He touches on human imperfection as being man's blurred/hindered vision.
