Subject(s): Clouds; Solitude; Loneliness


One white cloud up in the sky
One lonely bird flying by --
One small tree up on the hill
One book, one self, beneath the tree --
What solitude --

As the cloud serenely glides
As the bird soars floatingly
As the tree leaves slowly flutter
As with open book I lie and look
Upon the solitude --

O cloud, O bird, O tree and book
O silence that fills the quiet air
O solitude of things that are --
O self that's seemingly apart
To make this solitude --

Stillness so somber and yet so peaceful;
Stillness of sky, bird and tree,
Stillness writ on the book before me
Stillness within stillness without --
Just solitude --
