Ode to Clouds
Why are you up there? Oh so very tall
In the sky. I say, you look lazy up there.
Without purpose but to let your tears fall,
Fluffy and light like a marshmallow hare.
How calm you are on a cool, windy day
Seemingly moving, but it’s Earth’s toil,
Shielding us from the harmful sun’s rays.
Up there in your own independent way
Not solitary, but never a smile
Working without trying, you earn my praise.
