Poets Corner: With Special Guest Billy Zane

I'm Billy Zane

I'm Billy Zane

A free verse poetry reading from Billy Zane… “The Rainbow Connection” – Originally performed by Kermit the Frog

I

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what’s on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we’ve been told and some choose to believe it
I know they’re wrong, wait and see.
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it,
and look what it’s done so far.

I was in Tombstone, did you know that?

I was in Tombstone, did you know that?

What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we’ll find it, that rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

II

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I’ve heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it.
It’s something that I’m supposed to be.
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me, Billy Zane.

*Applause Thank you.

Original poetry written by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher.

Ah the memories…
