The Little Floating Clouds

The Little Floating Cloud

The little floating clouds
On the horizon, just above
Bring not rainstorms, dark and loud
Only whispered wisps of love

  1. Excellent. Brings to mind –

    I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud


    I wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

    Continuous as the stars that shine
    And twinkle on the milky way,
    They stretched in never-ending line
    Along the margin of a bay:
    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

    The waves beside them danced; but they
    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
    A poet could not but be gay,
    In such a jocund company:
    I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:

    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.

            The Immortal Nineteenth Century in One Act

            (Dedicated to K. Brindley)

            Dorothy: Get out of bed, Will! You have poems to write and sheep to cuddle!

            William: Groan. You are the only sheep/I wish to baa baa/But, listen, “Tweet, tweet/Tweet, tweet,” methinks it tells/Of a golden age to come again

            Dorothy: My Word, ’tis but a bird, fix up your rhyme with your porridge and share a bit with that dusty bird – look it shakes off the night it spent in our roof again. Time to put on a new shingle, Will.

            William: Must get ready for Coleridge, sister mine. The Lake air does him much good. Mayhap he leaves his pipe in the city.

            Dorothy: And Byron, ought of him?

            William: I fear they shot his pigeon. Perhaps the mail coach will have something.

            Dorothy: Whatever it is, don’t light the fire with it, brother mine. We are short of paper, you know.

            William: Ay, the back of it will serve for future eyes.

          2. Wait…I hope you didn’t construe it to mean I challenge you. As in, you versus me. No, no… To clarify just in case: the challenge was wholly one-sided to you.
