Today’s Rainbow Challenge is brought by Randy Runt of a Reader. I might just do both versions for the h of it, here’s the author challenge:

R – Russo, Richard

O – O’Brian, Patrick

Y – Yeats, William Butler (I’ve never blogged Yeats, but one of his poems is one of those I regularly get as an «earworm», so I’ve included it below. I also love his The Second Coming, though please don’t ask me to analyze it…)

G – Goldstone, Lawrence and Nancy

B – Bjärbo, Lisa

I – Irving, John

V – Valente, Catherynne M.  (I’ve read The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, but not blogged about it.)

An Irish Airman Foresees his Death

I KNOW that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate
Those that I guard I do not love;

My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan’s poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.

Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public man, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;

I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.

— W. B. Yeats
