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.

    Marilyn, thanks for your comments. I like that you notice the grand motion of nature in the little things like apple blossoms (how great to see!) , and here, the rolling of words along with the clouds. (Report) Reply

    It is truly amazing how people back then built their own civilizations in the middle of nowhere. I like how you said it. Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
