Soft As The Wind


This day has been dragging,
My heart won't stop nagging,
Anxious for night to appear;
Now the moon's on my pillow,
And that old weeping willow
Smiles as the wind dries its tears

Conflicting emotions
Rise and fall like the oceans,
I'm singing his name like a hymn;
And as I lay here waiting,
Wildly anticipating,
He comes to me, soft as the wind

And the thrill in my heart
Orders gloom to depart,
Sadness leaves to find a new home;
With the happiness I feel,
The pain starts to heal,
And I'm left with joy I've never known

You love me, yes, you've said it!
O, my love, I won't forget it,
Heaven's dictate we dare not rescind;
Then the heavenly throng
Bursts forth into song,
And you come to me, soft as the wind

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
