High Clouds, Low Clouds

for SATB Chorus and Piano

Ideal for middle school, high school, or adult chorus, High Clouds, Low Clouds is an fun and accurate description of the most common cloud formations while evoking the 1970s in an entertainingly retro-pop style.

High Clouds, Low Clouds,
drifting, floating –

Cumulus clouds of sunny summer days
look like puffs of cotton candy in the sky.

High clouds, low clouds, drifting, floating, accumulating –

Stratus clouds are sheet-like, low and gray.
Higher altostratus clouds obscure the sun.

Then…gray nimbostratus, dark nimbostratus
bringing rain, dark rain.

Cirrus clouds are feathery and thin
and they look like corn silks in the sky.

Cumulus clouds of summer days
can look like giant cauliflower in the sky.

Nimbus clouds in all their forms bring storms,
thunder and lightning and precipitation.

Cirrus clouds in narrow bands
sometimes look like a lock of hair in the sky.

Stratus clouds are sheet-like, low, and gray
but higher altostratus screen the sun.

High clouds, low clouds, drifting, floating –
endlessly wandering in the big sky.
