And then, in the blowing clouds, she saw a band of faint iridescence colouring in faint colours a portion of the hill. And forgetting, startled, she looked for the hovering colour and saw a rainbow forming itself.

In one place it gleamed fiercely, and, her heart anguished with hope, she sought the shadow of iris where the bow should be.
