Rainbow Passage
Recorded by Professor Katharine Harris
(of City University of  NY and Haskins Laboratories)

1. When the sunlight strikes raindrops in the air, they act like a prism and form a rainbow.

2.  The rainbow is a division of white light into many beautiful colors

3.  These take the shape of a long round arc with its path high above

                             and its two ends apparently beyond the horizon.

4.  There is, according to legend, a boiling pot of gold at one end.

                                 People look, but noone ever finds it.

5.  When a man looks for something beyond his reach,

                       his friends say `He is looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow'.
