Once I Saw a Cloud (Written at Age 8)

Free Poems - Written at Age 8

Once I Saw a Cloud

Once I saw a cloud;
Cliffs around the edges,
With water coming down.
Only an angel could go there
Without being forced to drown.
It gave me a surprising feeling -
Was it an angels house?
And though it seemed big to me,
Was it only the size of a mouse?

Staring

Why do people stare?
Is it because they’re nosy,
Or is it because they’re not anywhere?
Are they really staring,
Or is something wrong with their eyes?
Maybe they’re just staring
Because they’re in surprise.
Do they know it’s rude to stare?
Do they think they saw a bear?
Or do they see a tiger or a lion?
I’m looking for the answer,
and I keep on tryin’.

I made a scrapbook page with the poem, "I Once Saw A Cloud". I did give credit to the author.

Thanks for letting me know Olivia, that's great.

One thing, when you publish one of my poems online I require that you include a link back to the post with the original poem, on this blog. Could you please add a link to:
