The Windmill of Love

Updated on July 24, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

That which we know as love,

can be fickle or true,

like the spokes of a windmill -

love goes round and round.


A love that isn’t true,

will make a believer out of you,

a foggy mist all around the windmill knows -

to turn whichever way the wind blows.


Love is a mystical thing,

it comes and goes,

people appear into our lives =

going round and round a revolving door.


The windmill of love keeps turning,

our whole lives through,

our hearts keep beating -

searching for a love that is true.


When at last our hearts find a home,

the windmill stops turning,

standing like a sentinel -

that guards the love we have been seeking.


We keep close all who are dear to us,

never letting strange winds blow them away

and love’s windmill keeps turning our way -

only when warning signs need heeding.


Remember to keep refueling,

love’s windmill as the years go by,

fill it full of precious memories -

to treasure till the day you die.

      From my understanding that is true Demas. They have even predicted that where I live now Riga, Latvia could wind up water logged.

      "Holding back the sea" was my understanding of the illustrating windmills shown. With global warming and the sea's impending rise much of Florida and US coastal locations will be underwater, and Holland as well. Heated arguments also raise seas of anger and can swamp what could have been preserved.

      The windmill turns as the wind blows

      To indicate which way the wind goes

      As the love blows away with the wind

      And the windmill stills when the love ends

      Blessings my friend
