King and I

I saw a boy in the clouds
He smiled down aon me,
he showed his teeth and stuck out his tounge
and threw out a dash of irony

I saw a girl in the sun
She must have been his friend
She had that same smile and sparkle
and as I could feel, my heart did bend

I saw a man in the leaves
He was reaching out his hand
but it looked for like a wave than yearning
and I wished to understand

I saw a princess in the raindrops
She was attached to a man'r arm
She had plastic legs and tiger eyes
and that shouldn't set off any alarm

I saw a King in the horizon
He had perfection all in a crown
He had love woven in his fingertips
and like a glass of water, he drank it all down

I saw a girl in the moon
She must have loved the king
She had a fairly large grin and a sparkle
that made every bird want to sing

I saw a couple in the sunset
They had their hearts and fingers laced
The had their vision slightly impaired,
but they knew they were rightly placed
