Blow Ye Winds, Blow


The wind has been blowing
for days on end.
And the gusts have found their way
into my calm and peacefulness
and so it is I say
'Blow ye wind and have no care
for how you ruin the air'.
I yearn for fair breezes to waft
and touch upon my face
and change this windy place.

The coldest winds are from the north
and chill me inside out.
It seems there is no end to them.
Their force is bending my trees.
They've chased the springtime bees.
Every day I awaken to find them
whistling their song.
And it is the middle of May.
There must be something wrong
for these winds blow much too strong..

    A really nice poem. The wind blows but we have no knowledge
    where the direction of the wind is coming from, therefore it
    is another force of nature that we have no control over. Very soothing. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
