The Wind - Poem by Valerie Dohren

The wind blew oh so wildly
The night my father died
It rag`ed like a tempest
And on that night I cried

Yet upon my wedding day
The wind blew sweet and free
Gently o`er my bridal gown
To bless and honour me

The wind blew calm and softly
The day my child was born
Whisp`ring oh so tenderly
To welcome each new dawn

And it shall yet be quiet
No more to rage and roar
When`er my life is over
And I will be no more

The wind will blow in fury
When`er the world shall cease
Then linger still and silent
When all that reigns is peace

    Beautiful! This has such a seemlessly soothing rhythm! I like you use of ' (forgive my ignorance, this probably has a proper term!) to break down words so they fit better. I read without tripping over my eyes! (Report) Reply
