     You are so beautiful and trusting
     lying there on the sky
               you seem to be breathing softly
     you look slightly nude, as if the clouds had parted

     when the wind comes
                   you speak of an itch or a tickle
     you are very gentle
                I want to kiss you and I do
     and look slightly shaggy and perfectly carved.
