Canaletto's Regenbogenbrücke

auf englisch gibt es ein schönes, tröstendes Gedicht:

Lend Me A Kitten

  I will lend to you
  for a while a kitten, God said.
  For you to love while she lives,
  and mourn when she is dead

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,
  or maybe two or three.
  But will you, till I call her back,
  take care of her for me?

She'll bring her charme to gladden you
  and should her stay be brief,
  you'll always have her
  as solace for your grief.

  I cannot promise she will stay,since
  all from earth return, but there are
  lessons taught below this kitten is to

I've looked the whole
world over
  in search of teachers true,
  and from all the folks on earth
  I have chosen you
Now will you give her all your love,
  not think the labor vain?
  Nor hate me when I come to take
  my kitten home again?
And my heart replied,
  "My Lord, that will be done."
  For all the joys this kitten brings,
  the risk of grief I'll run.
We'll shelter her with tenderness,
  we'll love her while we may,
  and for the happiness we've known,

  forever grateful stay.


But should you call her back
  much sooner than we planned,
  we'll brave the bitter grief that comes,
  and try to understand.

If by our love we've managed
  your wishes to achieve,
  in memory of her sweet love,
  please help us
while we grieve
When our cherished kitten departs

  this world of stress and strife,
  please send yet another needing soul
  to love for all her life


so God has lent me (for a while):
