CLOUDS, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: There were no flowers in the sky
Last Line: Fragrant and without a stain.
Subject(s): Clouds; Flowers; July; Sky

There were no flowers in the sky,
Only a cobalt field
Of glittering July.
My gaze of wonder
You grew
From gathered dew,
Your soil the fertile breeze,
Your seed the hum of bees;
Blossoms alone and complete.

Now though you disappear
Out of the singing sphere
There shall be no lament for fleeting beauty,
No sighing breath
For this which is not death.
Rank decay or rot of leaf
Does not mar your passage brief.
Heaven bore you without pain;
Heaven a garden will remain, !
Fragrant and without a stain.
