    Loved your tanked so much look what it did to me:

    the sun it paints
    the colors of a rainbow
    raindrops its canvas
    natures disguised treasure chest
    go ask any leprechaun
    a leprechaun
    shovel sack and sieve to hand
    to dig for gold
    saw me looking shouted back
    wake up wake up your dreaming
    could see the fire
    burning vying with the sun
    your eyes shooting flames
    searing passion of your soul
    tears raining love untold

    Will be posting them on my blog, watch out for a pingback. Best wishes,
