Running across the field
The boy steers his kite
Towards the rainbow

In the old fishpond
a school of young fishes
mingled with the rainbow

In every tear
Of the hungry child
At least a rainbow

In the fishpond
Mirrored the boy, his dreams
And the rainbow

A distant glider
Just approaching the rainbow
Will he ever return
