Set Your Sights High
or (You Cannot Be Cirrus!!)

I aspire to Asperatus,
‘Though my aim is Alto Stratus
And my Cumulo’s not as Nimbus as it was.
But my Circumzenithal Arc
Looks just as good, light or dark,
With my Kelvin-Helmholtz,
Fringed with Diamond Dust.

As my Auntie Crepuscular says
“Don’t chase Noctilucent rays!
Save your Glory
For the Horseshoe Vortex crowd.”
So I’ll stand up for my Incus
And ignore all blue-sky thinkers.
Come on Mammas!
Lift your heads up!!
And be proud!!!
