A Riddle Poem



What’s in a Rainbow?

What's in a rainbow, but not in a wish?
What's in a spoon, but not in a dish?
What's in the morning and every night,
But never in ever -- and out of sight?



(Give up?  Scroll down for the answer).

I'm so proud of myself - I got it without looking! You know what...you reminded me of something! I wrote a very similar poem eons ago - perhaps I'll post that for PF!

Was onto you the whole time. ;) As a kid, you would have gotten me though!

i love this kind of riddle! Once you've been stumped by one, you aren't usually stumped again.

Your images are very provocative!
