Do you like the wind? I do, unless it's a cold wind!
It washes the air clean and brings the scent of the fields
across the yard. We have had a lot of wind this spring
here in our part of the prairie- hopefully today's wind
brings us some rain like the poem below mentions!
There is a solemn wind tonight
That sings of solemn rain;
The trees that have been quiet so long
Flutter and start again.
The slender trees, the heavy trees,
The fruit trees laden and proud,
Lift up their branches to the wind
That cries to them so loud.
The little bushes and the plants
Bow to the solemn sound,
And every tiniest blade of grass
Shakes on the quiet ground.
~Katherine Mansfield, 1917~
