Poem- Like a row of Sentries stand

Updated on December 11, 2015
Sentries of wind turbines
Sentries of wind turbines
Sea wind turbines
Sea wind turbines

Like a row of sentries stand

Moving with earth’s breath command

Slim in design with motions of grace

Propellers revolve at elegant pace

Tall and strong in blustery gales

Turn in cycles their three pronged sails

As millers magicians rotate all the hour

Conjure wind into electric power

Eco-friendly resource is the word

Perhaps a hazard to curious birds


A modern use of nature’s source

Clean electricity a matter of course

Now out to sea they take their place

Making use of shallow tidal space

Their numbers grow without alarm

Garrisoned soldiers based on a farm

A quiet revolution is now at hand

In our green and pleasant land

On each hill top they will take their place

It won’t take long, just watch this space
