The Rainbow Bridge


Where time and tide at sea are lost
And where the four wild winds lay crossed
She reaps the winds that storms do sow
And weaves the waves that ebb and flow
With fisher men's nets she catches soft sighs
And wishes and prayers from pale blue skies
She stitches and sews them with tidy seams
Her beautiful tapestries of sweet dreams
She gathers up sea spray to sprinkle as dew
Collecting bright colours of vivid hue
She makes an arc of ribbon above her
A bright rainbow bridge to guide her lover
And to make the stars that twinkle and shine
She saves all the tears she's cried over time
