In the Wind (a poem)


'nature's fragility, nature's beauty' ldyck

Sing to me of trees dressed for autumn,
of spring rain, of summer sun,
of snowflakes dancing in the air 
like fairy princesses.
And I will follow you 
down dirt paths,
through snowbanks,
we will leave footprints in the sand.
We will be children of nature, 
living forever in the wind.

*On April 28, 2018, while on a walk with Abby, this poem flew from some magical place to my ear.

Thank you, Pat : ) I will--and with your kind comment my pen will flow even faster.

A lovely poem. Perhaps a collection of poems and short storyes is in order.

Thank you for the encouragement, Darlene. It's definitely food for thought.

Leanne — I echo Darlene's brilliant suggestion: "Perhaps a collection of poems and short stories is in order." Yes, indeed!

Thank you, Laurie. : ) Hopefully, a publisher will be as encouraging and supportive as you.
