In reading Chinese ancient

By X. Z. Shao

In reading Chinese ancient
Classic Book of Songs
I was amused and informed
that if there was an affair
going on in a village or a town
a rainbow would appear in the sky.
D. H. Lawrence wrote once
that a rainbow’s two legs
arching up to meet each other
is a consummation of sex.
I am not sure whether
he had a knowledge
of the Chinese book,
or just a coincident of observations,
the same, millennia apart.
