The Night-Time Rainbow

Listen to Laura ...
I looked up at the sky last night
And saw a night-time rainbow.

The air burped purple, green and blue
A swirly night-time rainbow.

Flashing colours-oozing-joyful
One amazing night-time rainbow.

We’re lucky people it was here
That Northern, glowing, shining, lightening,
One time,
Night-time rainbow.
