The Cloud Brothers and Ladies of concern

Photo by RODNAE Productions on
Barely noted in the annals  of medieval churches
because they were so common,
these two orders were recruited 
from the Recent Dead.
Concerned for their families or friends, they were given dispensation
to hover quietly in the clouds above their previous home. 
It is said they were plump - both men and women; their eyes pale blue.
They were seen to smile frequently,
their voices mistaken for wind in the trees.

They sang quietly, as a child might calm a younger brother or sister.
