“Our world is so full of division, words of war, acts of violence, and disrespect that I yearn for the years when people could take a long break from all the stress. I liked the following poem as a child and now as an old woman. A Rainbow to me is a sign of peace, forgiveness, love, and connection.”   Yu/stan/kema


THE RAINBOW                                            

My heart leaps up when I behold

A rainbow in the sky:

So was it when my life began;

So is it now I am a man;

So be it when I shall grow old,

Or let me die!

The Child is father of the Man;

And I could wish my days to be

Bound each to each by natural piety.
