  RAINBOW
SPLENDOROUSLY RESPLENDENT
RISING FROM THE SWIRL
OF GUSHING WATERS
ARCHING OVER THE THUNDEROUS
WATERFALL,
DISAPPEARED, HID
BEHIND ITS INVISIBLE SOURCE

FULL OF WONDER
I STRETCHED MY ARMS
AND HOLDING IT
TO GRASP ITS REASON
AND MEANING AND MEASURE
AND BLEND AND BEAUTY OF
ITS MAGNIFICENT COLOURS

FORCIBLY UNBENT IT
AND QUICKLY, LAMENTABLY
LOST ITS MAGIC
