The Magic of Nature

Note: Originally published on Facebook on June 22

As the sun set for the first time in many days, to be precise, at 11:41
We finally bid adieu to the Land of the Midnight Sun
Leaving this scenic and serene country behind left us with a heavy heart
But then something miraculous happened, that gave us a start

For, my dear readers, we had forgotten that Norway is a land of ancient magic
So how could it allow us to leave in a mood sombre, bordering on tragic
The reindeers in our pictures saw us looking morose
And decided to do something to straighten up our pose

The message went out to the eider ducks, the polar bears, and finally, the troll king
These humans need some magic, to fill their life up with some zing
So the troll king suddenly appeared in front of us
And said, I’m doing something for you, but please don’t make a fuss

Now, the troll king pointed in one direction, chanted something, and lo
We were greeted with a majestic, mighty, spectacular rainbow
And while we were admiring this magic of nature
The troll king said, remember, I am not the only magical creature

The most magical power in the world, he continued, is one’s imagination
Unleash it, and every moment can be one of wonder, of utter fascination
So the next time you are feeling down because of the setting of the sun
Think of this rainbow, conjure up something magical, and just have some fun

  1. When I visited NZ there were some fabulous rainbows. We’ve seen several since arriving here and there are almost as bright as I remember. Just something about them that makes you feel good, don’t you think?
