Wind Songs--By Connie Marcum Wong--United States

Wind Songs

Romance me with your flirty breeze,
Susurrate songs in leafy trees.

March winds you clash with tidal flows,
Keep waves in hindered highs and lows.

Your power paves a mockery
Of gentleness I long to see.

Won't you return our springtime bliss
Caressing cheeks with tender kiss?

Don't make meek martyrs of the trees
When you uproot them as you please.

To train tornados torrid path
In tempest tears you display wrath,

When all along I know you hold
A sacred spirit of the bold.

So beguile me with tender touch
With wind songs that I love so much,

And I will be your maiden fair;
You may finger my golden hair.

On through autumn our love will grow,
With wayward windy hearts aglow.

  1. Your words create lovely images, as if I am standing on the fringes and see the turmoil. Thank you

    1. Thank you very much Annie. I know the Midwest has had some major storms and tornadoes and the wind has wielded much destruction, but here in Hawaii we love the tradewinds because they keep it from being too humid. Blessings and Aloha, Connie

  2. Wind songs are a pleasure to listen to, as long as they are soft and tender! You make this sound so romantic, Connie. You too beguile with your poetic words! Have a lovely Sunday ~ regards // paul

    1. The tradewinds are romantic to me. They keep the humid weather at bay and sing Hawaiian songs. Thank you for your very nice comment Paul. Blessings and Aloha, Connie
