A HUMBLE POSTMAN

A HUMBLE POSTMAN
Clouds, you seem so high and distant,
looking from your heights quite proudly
at the people and their river
that are asking for your water.

I'd intend to climb the mountain
and await a cloud much humbler.
It proceeds at lower level.
I can reach and write a letter.

I'll complain that we are thirsty,
and the fields are dry and crying
without tears that wet the flowers
but with sobs that grieve their petals.

Will that little cloud have pity
and convey my tiny message?
Will the proudly flying vapour
heed my plea and fly much lower?
