Cirrus

I am the daughter of Earth and Water

And the nursling of the Sky;

I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;

I change, but I cannot die.

For after the rain when, with never a stain

The pavilion of Heaven is bare,

And the winds and sunbeams with their covex gleams

Build up the blue dome of air,

I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,

And out of the caverns of rain,

Lika a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,

I arise and unbuild it again.

-Percy Bysshe Shelley
