How to sweeten the clouds




If it rains, and every umbrella 
Swings wide its span, to capture space  
Trench coats and wellington boats 


Pots of water flood canyons 
Enraged one, with frustration 
By the driver who splashes on ponds 


Misery drawn on the face with drench 
If it rains, and everything gets wet 
And umbrella's forms mask to disguise faces 


And all long for a clement weather 
Look out for the girl with the flower yellow 
And ask her to fly to t' sky to seek word with t' clouds 


Bearing flowers, as gift to please 
To say, to the clouds, hold back your tears, dear 
And do not cry, here is a flower to cheer you up!


How to sweeten the clouds 
Hold back your tears, hold back your tears, dear 
This is how to sweeten the clouds
