    "Excuse me" said the rainbow
    to a partly cloudy sky
    "I appreciate you accepting me
    and never asking why"

    "You're always welcome" replied the sky
    As it turned a brighter shade of blue
    "Your colors bring me so much joy
    I should be thanking you"

    They spent the day exchanging stories
    Telling how wind and rain affect their day
    How twinkling stars highlight the night
    How the sun control things with just a single ray

    "Tell me rainbow" said the sky
    "Why weather conditions for you must be just right
    why you last for only a short time, never coming out at night
    dazzling everyone with your beauty
    only to soon take flight"

    Unlike other elements of the universe
    Rainbows are quite different
    Singular and alone
    A beautiful, yet mysterious phenomenon
    To them, the sky only a temporary home

    "I'm a victim of my myth"
    the rainbow said holding back a tear
    "I'm chased by millions young and old,
    hunted and stepped on for a mere pot of gold"

    The sky reflected on this reply
    Looked at the rainbow, wondering why
    Something so colorful, beautiful and meek
    Would feel the need to play hide and seek

    A sudden shift in the wind
    Caused a change in atmospheric pressure
    The rainbow faded away
    Gone for now, this magnificant treasure

    "Goodbye dear rainbow
    I'll look for you through the clouds
    or when I'm crystal clear
    I'll appreciate you and call you friend
    whenever you appear"
