I came across this cute little poem about Rainbows, and thought I should share it with you.
Rainbows have always held a fascination for artists, in fact anyone and everyone who has even an ounce of romanticism and optimism in them! The pot of gold we all know is a fairy tale but the beauty of the vibrant hues of a rainbow that signals the end of the rain is always a welcoming and beautiful sight.
I'll Paint You A Rainbow
I'll paint you a rainbow to hang on the wall,
to brighten your heart when the Gray shadows fall.
On a canvas of joy outlasting the years,
with a soft brush of sweetness to dry all your tears.
I'll paint you a rainbow with colours of smiles
That glow with sincerity over the miles.
On a palette of words I will tenderly blend
Tones into treasures of sunlight and wind.
I'll paint you a rainbow that reaches so wide,
Your sights and your sorrows will vanish inside,
And deep in the centre 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...
