love to watch the clouds scud high
some heavy grey ones lumber by
others fluffy white skip and sigh

they all add intrigue to our sky
changing shape as they vie
for attention when they’re nigh

they float they skim oh me oh my
marveling as I wonder why
will I float as far when I die

a never ending show as they try
to dance entrancingly on the fly
such glorious wonder I could not buy
