Handy Howard Poems

on December 7, 2016


Luke Harold liked to study weather

He wrote that some clouds looked like a feather

He had written a famous report of their new names

While his opponent’s went into flames

They will probably never get together

By Summer S.


The clouds have some names

Luke Harold gave them that thing

Clouds are very special

By Summer S.


Luke Howard was born in London, England

Mr. Howard liked to study the clouds

But, His dad didn’t want him to be lazy

So then he worked in a chemical shop

For a long, long, long, long, long, long while

Then joined a club that talked about science

He gave the clouds names on a short report

Cirrus, Cumulus, Stratus, and some more

Everyone thought he was brilliant, sure

But there were still many competitors

And they changed the names a lot, quite sadly

So now we know more than he named

Howard had named seven cloud types that day

But now there is ten, in the modern time

By Summer S. and Mae B.
