Come away, come away,

the wind whispers to me.

As it tugs at my hair twisting it in knots.

I relaxed against my back porch railing

Taking in all of nature as it comports

Birds are happiest in spring it seems

As they chase each other through boughs and branches


Come away, come away, the wind cajoles, flipping my shirt tail

above my waist twisting it into a misshapen state

I dare not budge or let go of the rail

It seems Mr. Wind is in a playful mood Today

It's strength no match for me

Sturdy legs from years of hiking up and down hills along nature's trail

I face its strength as it calls again ever so sweetly

Come away, come away


"fluttering and dancing in the breeze, one cannot but be gay in such a jovial company" excerpt, from William Wordsworth

The leaves green and lush dance happily to the music of its call

Twisting and gyrating to the tune as the wind makes itself known.

Come away, come away let's play Today

It's a tug as forceful as before


But I stand firm and shouted in tune

Not Today Mr. Wind.

I'm busy you see

Just watching the brisk play of the red robin

And the blue jay as they chase each other enjoying the Day


Come away, come away more vigorous its pull

Before it settles down to dash the limbs on which the wise owl slept

Never rustling as much as a feather on the speckled gray bird

Come away, come away and play I heard the wind whistle

As I shuttered the door and watched from inside

The wildflowers, Indian paintbrush, daisies, and daffodils replied

By twisting their heads and flailing their branches in colorful delight

Come away, come away


God, as it is defined, is in all of us we plant, we toil, we care for this Earth.
