Two Poems by Joan Adams Burchell ~copyright~
The goddess Iris, with arrow and bow from heaven's vast supply,
With colours fitting, she places a rainbow away up in the sky.
An arch of love - a covenant - is all that separates
This life from one we still don't know - the one through heaven's
How fitting is each rainbow, after the sky has wept;
Colours to cheer and lift our hearts, showing a promise kept.
Reflections of the rising sun cast
hues of pink and blue
And yellow, like a rainbow arched,
showing love for me and you.
That steadfast promise, through
all time, was left on the horizon this way -
God opening yet another door, a
new beginning - today.
I'll sing a song as I walk along
and give thanks in my own way
For miraculous colour, for rainbows
of love, for God - who gave me today.
