Whispers of the Wind


The Tree stands tall,
Listening to the Wind,
Whispering its cautionary tales.

The Tree stands tall,
Listening to the Wind,
But does not bend, you see?

You are the Wind,
And so I shall be the Tree,
Never fear, dear friend, I shall listen to thee.

Yet I shall not bend,
To your valiant assumptions,
To your hollow allegations.

Impetuous is the Wind with only it's tales to tell me,
But I shall stand Tall,
For I am the Tree.

    As so often happens when the number players is limited, the options for meaning just get blown wide open. Is the tree being bent by the wind or, the wind being bent by the tree.


    You are the Wind,
    (And) so I shall be the Tree,
    Never fear, dear friend, I shall listen to thee.

    Is this and effectively coupling the characters or delaying the development of your meaning? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
