Transient For M’lady Angie
A rain drop sparkles in the sun
Refracting light prismatically
Primary colours every one.
Collectively and separately
Though in itself quite colourless
It can convert white light into
Any colour more or less
A most impressive range of hues.
Sadly the magic cannot last
The raindrop will evaporate.
The present will become the past.
This is not open to debate
There is no room for argument
Rain drops are always transient
