Somewhere over the Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
A way above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then oh why can't I?

If happy little blue birds fly beyond the rainbow
Why oh why can't I?

Lyric by E.Y. Harburg


Dear friends, I'm going to take a break and see if I can find the pot of gold. I will continue posting on the "United Bloggers" blog, so if you like have a look there.

See you later.

There is something about the rainbow that attracts the artist in all of us - well caught!

Wow! What a beautiful shot! Do you see many rainbows on Texel?

Everyone needs a blogging break now and then. Hope you enjoy yours.

When I read the words to the song I imagined you singing it with a Dutch accent. lol

Beautiful! One sign of a good photograph is that everything extra has been trimmed away, that it all tells. This one certainly does that.
