The Curly White Cloud Loves the Sky

by Annette Wynne

The curly white cloud loves the sky;
It stays up there—so high, so high,
Until the earth sends up a call,
"I'm thirsty, cloud, O, fall, please fall!"

The flower children all around
Cry up: "Dear cloud, come to the ground,"
And so, the cloud says: "Good-by, Sky,
I'll come again—so high, so high."
