A pledge

A pledge:- that deep implanted in the breast

A hidden light may burn that never dies,

But bursts thro’ clouds in purest hues exprest!

Words: Ada Lovelace

The closing lines of her sonnet on Newton’s rainbow. Encouragement to keep faith in the light, even in the deepest darkness, and remember the miracle of the rainbow.
