If I could catch a rainbow…

I was sorting through a box of old photographs in my “get the pics in albums” project, and came across this handwritten poem in my writing. While it is very good, I know that I did not create it so must have copied it from somewhere. A search on Google was rather inconclusive as to who to attribute it to, so I am going to do what others have done and just consider the author anonymous.

To Mr/Ms Anonymous, may I say what a lovely thought is expressed in your poem. To my Blog readers, may I say what an excellent start this poem would make to yours, mine and everybody else’s imminent new year!

If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you
And share with you its beauty
On the days you are feeling blue

If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own
A place to find serenity
A place to be alone

If I could take your troubles
I would toss them in the sea
But all these things I am finding
Are impossible for me

I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair
But let me be what I know best
A friend that’s always there
