I'll paint you a rainbow that reaches so wide
Your sighs and your sorrows will vanish inside
And deep in the centre of each different hue
I'll paint a memory fashioned especially for you.
So lift up your eyes , for suspended above
You'll see a rainbow designed by the fingers of love.

We are all ok. Eevee has started talking (albeit not very clearly). She has started her new school and has settled very well. She had a certificate last week for Seren Yr Wythnos (Star of the Week) for excellent reading and number work.

Good morning Elsa and thanks for the below. I actually had no idea at all that there were Americans working in the South African gold fields. Very interesting! Reading through the article, yes, I can see that it might have been adapted from an American folk song. They were a long way from home! I'd also forgotten about the change of British uniform from the red jacket with the white band to khaki. I remember my mother telling me that the Brittish soon found that the red jacket and white cross made a perfect target for the Boer guns and so they were soon changed to khaki! It seems South Africa has always been a troubled country. Too much mineral wealth - too much human greed. I've learned something today!Very interesting. Hope you have a good day.

I'm just going to post in English now because it's been a long day and my brain's tried. When I googled Sarie Mare, they said it was not an origingal South African song but taken from an old American song. I'm quite sure it may have originally been a Dutch song but I cannot see how it would have been from America. Still we all share an interesting heritage. Enjoy the rest of your day. I think I'll be in bed with a book soon.
