FOREVER RAINBOWS

by Adrienne Foster Potter

There's a place that I know that's a fairy-tale land;  

Pink skies and rainbows full of gold,     

With sunshine so thick you can hold it in your hand    

And rainstorm symphonies I'm told.                  

And I'm going there tomorrow if I can.

Maybe I should go there today;             

It would be so fine just to visit for awhile.

Someday I'm going there to stay.

And the people don't walk 'cuz they fly where they go ;

The snowflakes are white but not cold.            

And the flowers don't die when the winter winds blow

'Cuz the snowstorms are warm I'm told.

And the birds sing their songs but all the songs have words.

The animals laugh and tell jokes,          

While the unicorns move all around in their herds,

And the frogs do speeches, not croaks.

It's a place where the raindrops never get you wet,

Where there aren't any roads or cars.    

Yes, and half of the skies are forever sunset

And half is the twilight and stars.

You can talk to the animals and they'll talk too--

They'll tell you secrets that they know.

The lions and tigers will want to play with you

So gently you won't want to go.

You can go there now if you close your eyes up tight

And think about every good thing.

And in your mind go up to a very high height

Like a bird on the rainbow's wing.

Everything is there and it's such a pretty sight--

Cotton candy grows on the hills.

Fireworks are lighting up the day and the night

And the sight of it gives me chills.

And yes, I'm going there tomorrow if I can.

Maybe I should go there today;             

It would be so fine just to visit for awhile.

Someday I'm going there to stay.
