Up in the sky, a rainbow
In seven colours does it glow
Atop the mountain high
Like a garland in the sky 😉
So beautiful and so fair
How did it come from thin air ?

(In other news, my self taught Malayalam classes are going very well. Especially since there’s no one to point out my mistakes. And I shall no longer complain about language textbooks used in schools. Most of them are quite good !  

More seriously, writing for children is an art. How to find the words, simple yet strong, catchy yet deep ?  How to find the right tone, neither high and mighty nor falsely dumbed down. I guess the best way is to unlearn what you have been taught and relearn, with them. To forget clinical facts and find wonder again)
