Poem – Harken to the Wind Song

Hey there! It’s nearly tomorrow where I am, and the weekend is waning fast… I’m anticipating heading back to school after a nearly a week of break with mingled joy and sorrow. I’m very ready to see all the people there that I dearly love, but at the same time it’s been so nice not to have to think about assignments or papers or work or anything for a few days. Oh well, it’s a good thing that Christmas break is just around the corner and I will get to enjoy being with people I love (HOME HOME HOME I’M COMING FOR YOU) as well as a much needed break from school. I just need to get through the next two weeks that are full of papers and projects and finals and then a 10+ hour plane ride. πŸ˜€ It will be fine – just fine…. (at least that’s what I’m telling myself hehe)

Today I have a wee little poem that I wrote at my poetry club a few weeks ago. It’s just a little bit of a thing, but I rather enjoyed writing it. And I hope you enjoy reading it! πŸ™‚


Harken to the wind song –

that ditzy ditty of joy

that ruffles the trees with a

teasing note of careless melody.

First a drunken roar, now but a whisper

as its mischief mellows to a merry tune –

like the day dims to dusk, the brightness

fading to a sunset just as sweet.

As the wind song fades and wearies,

harken to its haunting lilt and don’t forget

to feel the wonder of its joy

whisper deep and soft.


That’s all for this week! I’m off to tackle a creative project for school in what’s left of my Saturday. πŸ˜€

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this little poem of mine! Let’s chat in the comments. πŸ˜‰
