PRAYERS & POEMS FOR SCOUTERS

Show him the Rainbow

Inland NW Council

 

Show him the rainbows for rainbows donít wait

And soon heís all grown up, too soon itís too late.

Rainbows and Childhood too soon disappear

Like an Illusion, you thought they were here

 

Someday a rainbow may be hard to find

And childhood and rainbows will be hard to find

Like ripples on water they soon fade away

Then what will become of the plans you have made?

 

So take time to show him the wonderful things

Like snowflakes and dewdrops and butterfly wings

Show him the moonbeams that shine down at night

A sky full of starlight all twinkling at night

 

Soon youíll discover some treasures canít wait

So show him the rainbow before itís to late

Yes, show him the rainbow while he is still small

Or soon you will find there is no rainbow at all.

Adapted from JoAnn Ridings
