JOKES OF CLOUDS: Poetry, by Vladimir Majakoskij

JOKES OF CLOUDS

VLADIMIR.1.1Sailed clouds in the sky,

four pieces of clouds;

from first to third were people;

the fourth was a camel.

At these, curiously

he joined the street a fifth;

from it, in the lap of the blue sky

an elephant pulled away behind another.

And I do not know if he frightened the sixth,

suddenly the clouds ran away.

And behind them, to eat them,

as a yellow giraffe, he ran the Sun.

(Vladimir Majakoskij)
