Clouds~ an Ode



"Clouds"~An Original Song by M. Graham copyright 2009
(music forthcoming)

They bring the thunder,
They bring the rain.
And then a rainbow
We see again.


And the moon looks might pretty
With a veil across her face~
When God made clouds
He let us see His grace.



At dawn He paints them
With pink and gold;
He shows He loves us
With colors bold.





And as the daylight fades away,
He paints the clouds once more
To show though dark may come,
His love is sure.



You may not own a piece of land,
The prices run so high.
You may wander through the earth
And ask yourself just why~


The rich man seems to have it all;
All that gold can buy.
But raise your head,
For no one owns the sky!



A fairy castle,
A sea of blue.
A priceless treasure
For me and you.


A taste of Heaven given
To the children of a King.
He gave us clouds;
He'll give us everything.

Love,

Marqueta

  5. Hey, again! I just realized I had al"read"y read this poem! Only, I only realized that when I saw the comment I had left on the first day of the Second Month of this year! Honestly, had I not seen that, I would have thought I had read it for the first time! I love this poem and its author so much, I can hardly express it! I own some land in reverse (i.e. I'm in debt), but thanks you great sisters like you, I know I'm rich!
