O Raging Wind - Poem by Valerie Dohren

O wind, O raging wind
Come seize me in your flight
Then bear me on your wings
Through realms of darkest night
Blow, blow with all your might
Blow, blow with all your might

Carry me and raise me
So high above all things
In your swirling vortex
Where loud your voice there sings
Blow, blow O king of kings
Blow, blow O king of kings

N`er deem to steal my heart
Nor yet all hope abrade
For truth shall be my guide
Of you I`m unafraid
Blow, blow until you fade
Blow, blow until you fade

    Your writings don't leave much room for improvement. The competition is thin where you reside.
    Very melodic-a beaut

    I've said this before about your poems, so I'll say
    it again, I think this is one of your best, it leaves
    the reader wanting more, it's poetry at its very best,
    and it's an honour to read it. A truly fantastic poem.
