 This  Side  Of  The  Rainbow
Skies  are  seldom  blue,  rather  a
Bleak  shade  of  gray,  a  chilly
Northern  wind  blows  against
The  trees,  where  birds  huddle
Silently,  their  hearts  have
No  song  to  sing.


Troubles  never  melt  like  lemon
Drops,  no  rainbows  to  be  seen
Above  chimney  tops,  no,  not  this
Side  of  the  rainbow.


No  hint  of  blue  skies  in  view
No  billowy  clouds  to  lend  beauty  to
No  children's  laughter  can  be  heard
Photo sharing and image hosting - EchoPic
Their  noses  pressed  against  a  window
Pane,  chanting  rain  rain,  please  go
Away.


Mothers  mind  goes  back  in  time
Before  dad  left  his  family  behind
To  search  for  that  pot  of  gold  at
The  rainbows  end.


Thats  when  their  world  turned
Gray  and  the  rains  came  and
Stayed, Their  lives  have  never  been
The  same,  no,  not  this  side
of  the  rainbow.
