As Clouds Rolled By


So many things changed as clouds rolled by
Can you imagine a long time ago
Where there was nothing for miles around
But the life continued to flow.

Folks built their world out of nothing at all
For all they could do was to try
They carved out an amazing civilization
And it took place as clouds rolled by.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,

At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
