A Rainbow, by AnElephant's friend Emma

A Rainbow, by AnElephant’s friend Emma

AnElephantCant understand a rainbow
Though he knows it’s the wonderfullest thing you can find
He has no real clues
Observing the hues
Maybe because he is colour blind

It is perhaps the strangest of all nature’s wonders
Created by sunbeams shining through
Tiny perfect raindrops
Whenever rain stops
Although in Scotland it’s true these times are few

Red Orange Yellow Green
Blue Indigo Violet
This Magnificent Seven
Transport us into Heaven
And there is no earthly reason why not

They encompass a myriad of magic
Most of which AnElephantCant comprehend
Is there something beyond
Like a laughing Leprechaun
AnElephant believes there’s a pot of gold at the end

Sometimes it’s the smallest of arcs
Sometimes a crescent or stunning semi-circle
The shape does not matter
The colours may scatter
It is always the most beautiful miracle

AnElephant is still a romantic
He considers this marvel in the sky
He then wonders why
If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow Why oh why can’t I?

    AnElephantCan paint a rainbow
    On Emmy’s blues
    It is a magical
    miracle
    Un arc-en-ciel
    Essentiel.

    This is wonderful. I love your poem. Truly delightful verses on the colors of the rainbow. Emma’s picture suits your words perfectly! I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing anelephantcant fly over the rainbow, that would be most interesting! 🙂

    I have often seen a rainbow
    Even to the end I did go
    In a field full of corn
    Was no leprechaun
    And there was no pot of dough
