a poem for Mr. Wordsworth
You’re n e v e r lonely as a cloud
for like the sheep, you’re with the crowd
and plus there’s always loads to do
like soak a fete or barbeque
Us clouds are water – boiled you know
for we’re recycled H20
from stream to sea to cloud to rain :
precipitation is our game!
And how we love it when it’s warm
for then we cook a mighty storm
but when it’s time to help some flowers
we’ll brew up those April showers
Going back to our CV
we have a range of skills you see
from snow to hail and mist to fog –
to making shapes for you to spot!
A sunny spell? oh we’ll be back
you’ll need some rain – and that’s a fact
we’re high as kites and cool as jazz
that’s clouds like us – our life’s a gas!
