I sailed in a ship of rainbow hue

As the sun set low on the horizon blue

And the colors, they came

Across wooden bow

And a strong built frame

They sang of Venice

And Ancient Peru

Until all of a sudden

A swallowtail flew..

I lost all thought,

As this gentle path I sought

Careful my step, quick my eyes

A graceful wing, in silence rise

To take me once more

To the long night’s ne’er forgotten shore

Whence the sun sets warm in a sky of blue

And the ship that awaits me,

Is all bedecked in a rainbow hue
