Poetry and Pictures - Weather

American artist Albert Bierstadt painted landscapes of the western United States during the nineteenth century. He was a part of the Hudson River School, a group of painters who painted in a style that is sometimes called Luminism. In the center of the valley in this painting there is a low stratus cloud also called fog. There are some stratocumulus in the upper right.

Clouds of Purity
by Emilyrose, age 11, Pennsylvania/USA

Clouds of vapor
Full with Purity and puff
Its earthy mist is never enough
Until it washes away the grey and sin
And comes away with a rainbow of kin
Watering the sprouting
Rejuvenating the old
Told with a sprinkle of the mouth
Like rain
Clouds please never lain
