Hello, my Friend! Hello, today!
I hope you are in a good way!
No matter rain, no matter shine,
I always hope your day is fine!
I’d like to speak of clouds today!
I hope, with you, this is ok.
I’ve seen so many clouds so fine.
Sometimes they even join sunshine.
The colors, shapes, and quantity,
Make clouds often a sight to see!
They can be white and fluffy, too,
Which makes the sky so bright and new!
Fluffy, though, isn’t always so,
Streaky and gray might also show.
I’ve heard fancy names for a cloud…
Not so easy to say out loud!
Cumulus, cirrus, stratus, too…
These names sound familiar to you?
Good for you if, indeed, they do!
Then you have seen skies not all blue!
But there is something else to say
About clouds in the sky each day.
And that is that a cloud has done
Something even better than fun!
That clouds give rain is very grand,
To help the plants in our fine land…
To help the green grass grow so well,
Is also wonderful to tell.
But even better than all that…
Even nicer than a green hat…
Lord Jesus, Who is King of Kings,
For Whom we know each Angel sings,
He chose a cloud to be His Throne
And set a fine, grand heav’nly tone,
By lifting high the Son of God,
Thus giving clouds a Mighty Nod!
To carry Him high in the sky,
Home to Heaven, is the reason why
I thank the clouds for their fine care,
In helping God’s Son to get where
He would be Home and helping all…
No matter whether tall or small!
But that’s not all, for it is said,
That after He rose from the dead,
And clouds helped Him to rise to Heav’n,
There is still more that will be giv’n!
He’ll come again in that same way,
When He rose to Heav’n on that day!
Seated at His Father’s right Hand,
He rules as King of every land.
Of all of this, St. Pat did tell…
Of Jesus, King, He taught so well.
The clouds, when called, will do for Him,
What He asks, with vigor and vim!
We, Leprechauns…we know all this.
We know it is the Truth…yes…’tis.
But, oh my, my…I’m sleepy now…
And hungry, too. I don’t know how
To stay awake to first eat some…
So I have strength for Kingdom come!
How grand ’twill be when that fine day
Brings all of us to Heaven’s way!
But I’m so glad we read today!
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote # 31)
