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

    BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

    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.

  2. Au contraire, my friend. Somewhere in W. Blake I have read that a work of the imagination never dies. (Always in the camp of the mystics and visionaries!) I see no light between these two poems – only in them.
