Babe Rainbow

by davebarclay1954

Looking out at the flowers and weeds
Wonder how it came to this
I don’t have the energy to plant new seeds
They’d only be choked by the weeds anyway

We had some rain last night just a little
So different to last year when it just kept on
No chance of respite from the floods
Haven’t heard of any so far, let’s hope they’ve gone

Of course no rain means no rainbow
No dress of purple or gold could match
The colours in the sky, babe, go slow
Don’t want you to have a crash
