Summer Cloud

A summer cloud is my pirate ship,
Huge and white and handsome.
Admire my celestial kingdom,
All conquered by my ship.
No sword can sever the friendship
Of my pirate ship and I.

My pirate ship is my intimate friend.
We’ve ridden the winds together,
No play-date could be grander!
As we sailed the sky, I fished for dreams
Or even wandering moon-beams.
I poured them out for others to enjoy.

At night, I hunt for precious gems.
I anchor my ship to the moon,
And dig out stars with a harpoon.
But then a wintry wind blows pass,
I spy Summer taking leave, alas,
It’s time to bid farewell to my ship.

But it won’t be long, I promise,
‘til we see each other again.
No matter what sky, what terrain
You are sailing or harboring at
Even though you’ve not come yet,
I’ll always be waiting just for you.
