Clouds, translated by Alishba Tariq

Black clouds will come
The clouds will pour the rain
down.
People will shower in the rain
Black clouds will come.

Rain will pour down, tip tip tip
Rain will sing, tip tip tip

We will sing and dance
Black clouds will come

Birds will sing songs
Birds will tweet songs

Frogs will also join in
Black clouds will come

 

Things I struggled with:
– I wasn’t familiar with a few words
– It was hard to translate exactly what the words mean
– Some of the words didn’t make sense when I translated them into English
How I helped myself:
– I got help from my dad
