by William Henry Davies (1871 - 1940)

The two flocks
Language: English 
Where are you going to now, white sheep, 
Walking the green hill-side; 
To join that whiter flock on top, 
And share their pride? 

Stay where you are, you silly sheep: 
When you arrive up there, 
You'll find that whiter flock on top :
Clouds in the air!
