Clouds: so often the most despised things of nature. When the heavens cloak themselves in grey, people look up to the sky, shake their heads, and mutter, "What a gloomy day." Does Nature have a heart, or does the sky have feelings? Is the rainfall the weeping of the heavens at such a disparaging remark? I know not, but one thing I do--I have looked with wonder at the clouds. Ah, how I love when they come somberly rolling in over a rolling green landscape to shield me from the sweltering sun. Oh, how my eyes sparkle when they strike the earth with a glittering staff of lightning, or when from their shadowy hearts a grumble of thunder emerges! And yes, how I relish when the patter of rain upon my roof comes in the night, lulling me gently to sleep.
Like clockwork, the clouds water the earth. They give us shade in a treeless land, with little acknowledgement. I urge you: do not despise the clouds. They are hard at work when we are not.
