Anu's Promise

by Brian Francis

Anu’s Promise

Do you really believe in rainbows?
Are they really, truly there?
And why do they always seem to flee
as I chase them through the air?

They seem, to me, to float above
forever reaching down,
for time immortal since Gilgamesh
wore a golden crown.

Do you really believe in rainbows?
Oh how peaceful they are up high.
The colors are vivid yet sometimes pale,
like water paints, in the summer sky.

Do you feel a twinge in your heart
when in the fury of Enlil’s rage;
do you believe in rainbows
and in the promise of another age?

The rainbow brings Anu’s word’s
that the sage alone could hear.
Yet the promise appears with the rains
Beautiful hues colorful, clear.

Tremendous poem... not too many people enjoy the Babylonian/Sumerian mythos. Glad to see they made it into your rhyme. Great read.
