Thread Name: Gone the rainbow PP&M translation
Subject: Gone the rainbow PP&M translation
I have for so many years sung Gone the rainbow to my daughters at bedtime (not anymore as they are a bit too old now).

The chorus has always intigued me as I havent got the faintest what it means. My kids have also asked what it means, but I haven't been able to explain it.

Is there anybody out there that can translate the verse for me?

Many thanks
