I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud


What does a cloud do
on a sunny day?
does he float about
all light and gay?

Or does he feel 
lonely and glum,
waiting for autumn
so his time may come?


This coffee shop used to be a
row of working stables.
Now there are little shops where
the horses used to be
and a coffee house in the main area.


For the next couple of weeks
I'll be in Scotland.
I'll miss you all.
