Voices Of The Wind - Poem by David Whalen

Wind chimes and tree leaves
Voices of the wind

Bulrushes, birdwings
Rattling roofs of tin

Howling zephyrs, soughing breezes
Atlantic gales, explosive sneezes…

All voices of the wind….

Rattle of windows, Bang of shutters,
Whisper of curtains, puff of summer gusts

Snapping of canvas from towering mastheads
Squeal of windmills as they adjust

Whispered messages from pinions of birds
Flapping of laundered linens

Soft velvety sighs of lover’s words
All voices in languages… of the winds

Childs’ anticipation, breath held deep within
Each inhalation, every exhalation….

Are all voices of the wind
