The Rainbow Connection


The next stanza continues the theme of the hymn, and once again we lack any text in the original jibber-jabber.

Why are there so much,
So many hymns of joy
About rainbows and
About the dreams that are upon the other sides?
Iridules are dreams that are glossopoeisis, but
They are dreams that are merely glamour
And rainbows hide nothing at all.
So ye and I, the dear ones
Were once told, and
Persons choose
To believe hit.
I gnow that, pardon me, they are ignorant.
Humbly wait, and look on in wonder!
Some day from now ye and I dearly and humbly are fated on purpose to find the elegant thing, the matrix of rainbows,
we who are loving sweethearts and dreaming elegant seekers.

Who in the past chanted that
All wishes were both heard and answer’d
When they are invoked
Upon Kheîlel?
Somewiht thunk of hit, and
Somewiht believed it
And look in wonder and
Gaze in wonder upon it, done
Until now!
What is so an astounded delight
That it indeed forces you and me, the dear ones
To be star-gazing?
Natheless what do ye and I, the dear ones
Humbly think
We shall xyst?
Some day from now ye and I dearly and humbly are fated on purpose to find the elegant thing, the matrix of rainbows,
we who are loving sweethearts and dreaming elegant seekers.

All of ye and I are dearly ensorcelled
In its gospel.
Ye and I dear ones know that
It’s certainly magic and words, probably.
You are a little asleep, ye?
Do you hear voices, ye?
I, the dear one, have humbly heard those who call my dear names. Does it chance to be the sweet sound that perchance calls the young æronauts?
The voice may behave as the one identical thing.
I’ve heard it
So many times
That
I must pay attention to it.
It acts as somewhat that is beholdenness unto me.
Some day from now ye and I dearly and humbly are fated on purpose to find the elegant thing, the matrix of rainbows,
we who are loving sweethearts and dreaming elegant seekers.
Laa, da daa dee da daa daa,

Personally I think that this is also a battle hymn, but I shall let the learned and the Wise and thou debate it. The least I can do is just list the words used herein.
