Poetry Friday: Late Edition

Okay, it's late Friday already, but I still wanted to take part in poetry Friday.

Today, I'd like to share 1/2 of "I Am Riding on a Cloud" (copyright issues) from Jack Prelutsky's classic A Pizza the Size of the Sun:

I am riding on a cloud
in the middle of the sky,
making idle conversation
with the birds who happen by.
I'm uncertain how I got here,
but I surely do not care.
I'm enchanted to be floating
unencumbered in the air.

Just how I feel sometimes.
Yay! I see Liz B. at A Chair, a Fireplace and a Tea Cozy and Jen at Jen Robinson's Book Page have both compiled Poetry Friday roundups! Head on over and read all the poetry choices.
