Above the clouds

Written by: Joseph May

 Atop  the mountains where thin clouds float
Covering the peaks in a misty veil
The eagle's eye takes careful notes
As above the clouds it sails

Above the trees where  a brisk wind blows
Whispering through the leaves to the cawing crows
Echoing over the hilltops as the wind stream flows
And above the clouds where sunbeams glow

Up on high in starry skies
Where clouds obscure the moon
A lone wolf howls a mournful  tune
As crickets yearn to croon

On peaceful nights when stars shine bright
And the sandman travels on moonbeams
It's then  it seems, we'll take slumber's flight 
As above the clouds we dream
