The Man-Cloud


The Man-Cloud

In the buzzing morning meadow
when the sun was not yet high
I thought I saw a man-cloud
walking in the sky.

My brother saw it differently;
he told me with a laugh
that what he saw instead
was an ice-skating giraffe!

“Can’t you see his long legs gliding?
Look close you’ll see him riding.
I distinctly see a tall giraffe
skating through the sky.”

I did not want to argue
or tell him he was wrong;
I saw a man-cloud walking
and wished to go along.
