The day the rainbow cried Poem by nicola burkett


I remember the day the rainbow cried
As it was the day my nanny died
I stared in bewilderedness as the colours started to run
For the rainbow was crying as God put away the sun
The angels in heaven all cried with me
As the rain poured down I could no longer see
All alone in the dark I was left to grieve
For along with my Nan the angels would leave
