Poetry and Pictures - Weather

Paintings by French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) are often like snapshots of real life. In this painting of Le Pont des Arts in Paris, France there appears to be two cloud types in the sky: mid-level altocumulus clouds and lower stratocumulus clouds with an elongate shape.

Rainy Day
by Allison, age 13, PA

It starts out as a gentle breeze
Blowing swiftly over seas
But inside
Dark storm clouds in the sky
A storm comes
Beating steady like a million drums
It falls
And falls
It never stops
On your head fall many drops
But in the end the sky will clear
And the storm is no longer near
It has taken its toll
On your afternoon stroll
