Hear The Wind Doth Blow...

Here in the UK, we have been been sheltering from Gales as they whipped across our Country, and the devastation and damage that they bring in their wake.. Waking the other night, to hear the wildness of the wind, prompted this creative work in the early hours of the morning..It does make you wonder if we Writers ever really shut down...lol..

Hear The Wind Doth Blow..

Hear the Wind how he doth blow,
his blustery breath upon this land..
And whistles through the Winter trees.
who sway and bend at his command.

Round yon Church Steeple, hear him howl,
as scuttled leaves are swiftly sent..
Harken to his tortured groans..
the cries of many sad laments.

Oh mighty Beast, you blow so wild,
round buildings silent, standing tall..
Searching, seeking nooks and crannies,
that you can enter, you can crawl..

..To whip the eddies of your breezes,
through doors and windows not quite sealed..
You dance within, while children sleep,
Caress them with your wind-swept chill.

Go now, I'm weary of your roaring..
Blow yourself out, let calm descend..
Once more within this moon-filled night,
your force diminish, now let it end.

And when I wake, your voice now silenced..
Your wild cry and your strength no more..
I will recall your night of bluster..
and the mighty voice of your windswept roar...

I love that part - I live in scotland so I think I may quote you on this often :)

We were lucky Richard, very little damage here, but I know that there was a lot of trees that came down across different parts of the Counties..Sorry to hear that you took some damage too up in the Midlands..

this is marvellous. You have a gift surely. Reading your words I became part of it and experienced the temper of Mother Nature and her anger...rightly so I think.

Wonderful. I felt chills in my bones.

The winds have brought many a typhoon here in our country in the past year. Most of the poorer areas have definitely suffered.

Although the wind is beautiful creature, it is definitely wild and can preserve as easy as it can end your life.

We are so lucky here in the UK, where even when our weather is rough, it isn't a patch on what other Countries suffer..but as you said, it can be a dangerous creature and loss of life does happen..

Songbird, I love this one. Wild weather tends to bring out an urge to write in me, hence my enjoyment here. And I've been moaning for the last couple of hours because our summer barbecue tonight ws spoiled by rain!

The Shakespeare in you at your finest, my lovely friend, the metaphorical language evoked live images of the howling winds. Thank you for sharing. HUGS!

I love this poem, you captured so well in your narration and I could visualize what you have experienced as the wild wind blew.

What a coincidence!

Songbird: This really is a good poem. "It's four in the morning and once more the dawning, wakes up a warning in me". Where did that come from? I think we trigger each other off.
Also, methinks that you have changed your picture. Just as beautiful as ever!. Love and Hugs, Ivyevelyn.
