Some say it’s a phase,
That it’s just youth at play,
Enjoy it while it lasts, they say,
They say this is just another intoxication;
They weren’t lying -
They saw the earth dry up after a spell of rain,
They saw the waves withdraw after teasing the shore,
They saw the moon when she was waning,
They saw the fading rainbow,
And they thought it was love,
When it was actually
The sapling that the earth nurtured with the rain she received,
The seashells that the waves gave the shore,
They didn’t see the waning moon’s yearning for the sun;
They didn’t know,
The rainbow was just the sun falling for the rain;
And how would they know?
They haven’t seen us.
