Ill Wind And Me

Sometimes ill wind blows my way, it seems
To cast opaque shadows o'er all my dreams
Sending my spirits downward soaring
Causes my life to lose its fragile mooring
I am wondering when this dismal mood lifts
Again, so I may feel the joys of life's finer gifts.
I am not alone, I know, here in the depths
My soul despite its dreary drift is not bereft
Of hope that I shall rise and soar
And know the ecstasy of living once more.

    I esp. enjoyed these words:

    " ...........here in the depths
    My soul despite its dreary drift is not bereft
    Of hope that I shall rise and soar
    And know the ecstasy of living once more." good luck!

    Lift your spirits with Kentucky moonshine.
    A jug or two and you'll soon be fine....or dead!

    I have had to contend with many ill winds blowing in my life. Eventually, though not always, the wind dies down. The pairs of rhymes fit the poem's theme well.
