Cloud Poem

cloud
A cloud in the sky,
Had a cool dream,
He learned how to talk,
He learned how to scream!
He learned to warn people,
Walking below,
When raindrops were coming,
And when there'd be snow...
I’m made-up of moisture,
Liquid or ice,
And when I fill-up,
Wet is the price!
But then cloud awoke,
All silent it seems,
Clouds couldn't talk,
Unless it's in dreams...
Look out below!
Cloud wanted to cry,
But cloud remained silent,
Up in the sky...
Cloud couldn’t warn,
His voice was well-cloaked,
And people below,
All went home soaked!

What are clouds?
Clouds are visible masses of liquid or frozen water that float in the Earth’s atmosphere (other planets can have clouds too).
When clouds become saturated through an increase of water vapor or the cooling of the air, the water falls in different forms of precipitation like rain, sleet, or snow.

There are many types of clouds, some of the major ones are:

Cumulus Clouds- these look like balls of cotton and have clear edges.
Cirrus Clouds- these are thin and wispy and are sometimes compared to strands of hair in the sky.
Stratus Cloud- these clouds that form in thin layers. They often look like fog, can cover the entire sky, and block the rays of the sun.
