Across the sky they seem to flowAs wind and currents gently blow.
The cumulus clouds in the sky,Fluffy, white, and ever so high.
Their shapes and forms are most complexNumbering at least a googolplex.
by Rebecca Wiggins
High in the bright blue sky A bird soared silently on the breezeI saw him as he flew byAnd wondered how he flew with such ease
Infected be the air whereon they ride:
And damn’d be them that trust them! I did hear”
Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And Summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And oft' is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd:
But thy eternal Summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
