While Lying On the Grass Today

While lying on the grass today
and staring at the sky,
I saw the strangest animals
in clouds that drifted by.

I saw a cloud that looked just like
an elephant on skis.
Another one reminded me
of dancing manatees.

I saw a duck on roller skates
play jump rope with a snake,
and monkeys in a monster truck
drive right into a lake.

I watched a bungie jumping cow,
and pigs on pogo sticks,
and beavers on their BMX bikes
doing gnarly tricks.

I spotted donkeys driving
demolition derby cars,
and spied a pride of lions
climbing giant monkey bars.

I even saw a surfing turkey
crash into a tree.
When you watch clouds go drifting by,
do you see what I see?
