CLOUDS

 

O’ cloud-maiden, O’ cloud-maiden,

don’t weep, don’t weep!

What jest thy yonder-man did croon,

don’t leap, don’t leap!

Let stars espy, planets lampoon…

their peep is cheap.

 

Thou lament well, to douse thy woe…

silly, silly!

No reason though I see well so

really, really!

Jolly drizzles thy smiles, gusto

chilly, shrilly!

But lo, deluge thy wail, oh no

vilely, vilely!

 

O’ cloud-maiden, O’ cloud-maiden,

don’t weep, don’t weep.

 

Whence fill our rivers, lakes and main

as rain and sleet

thee slake our thirst, thee make our grain.

How sweet, how sweet!

Thy tears of joy are pearls in chain

of grace replete.

Puddles thee make echo refrains

of childhood tweets.

 

O’ cloud-maiden, O’ cloud-maiden,

don’t weep, don’t weep.

 

Are fun, love fights, when tempers fly;

they say, they say!

He slurs, thee purr, he pries, thee vie;

ye play, ye play!

It’s game, thee win, he wins, sly, sly…

but pray, we pray!

Ye mind, thy neighbors living nigh

O’ yeah, O’ yeah!

He loves thee much, thy man the sky…

allay, allay.

 

O’ cloud-maiden, O’ cloud-maiden,

don’t weep, don’t weep.
