“Oh dear,” Said the water to the wind. “You give me the vapors!”
“I am your friend.” The wind replied. “With me you’ll soar into the sky.”
“I don’t like heights.” Said the tiny droplet, trembling.
“Oh my little droplet,” The wind then did proclaim.
“You’ve run as streams and rivers, sparkled in the day.
You’ve nurtured many things. Do not be afraid.”
I watched with great amazement as the wind then took to air
And raised the tiny droplet with the utmost care.
They rose in rippling wonder, a mirage before my eyes
So far into the yonder, then what to my surprise…
The tiny little droplet danced freely in the air
Became a wisp of cloud, none other could compare.
It grew in height and stature, floating way up in the sky
Then began to fall as gently as it first had climbed.
Twas then I heard the laughter, lifting in the wind
“This is so much fun; I want to do it all again!”
A thought of contemplation flowed slowly through my mind
As I paused to wonder, looking to the sky…
Just like this condensation everything must end
But an ending’s just a start for something to begin.
