Poem about the attributes of the wind to add to my nature poems.
"Wind Song"


Whispering secrets heard, as she passes through the trees
        Fluttering, shaking, caressing, thousands of shimmering leaves

                            Cools the brow of the farmer, whips up dust devils in the fields
                                        Bringing the promising scent of rain and hope of better yields

                                                      Blowing the sails full to bring catamarans to dock
                                                            Lifting playfully the bright circle skirt of a young girl's frock

                                                                                          Flag gently waving with a breath of air
                                                                                              Or billowing wildly with a gust and fanfare

                                                                                            Dancing on the pavement, leaves crisp and brown
                                                                                                    Swirling high in the air, slowly spiraling down

                                                                                                  Holds  the magic of a train's lonesome notes
                                                                                                      Cherishing a memory as the song floats

                                                                                                  Oh! the fury of the hurricane gale
                                                                                  Or spinning and churning a tornado spits hail

                                                            She soothes us, she cools us, her repertoire has no end
                                            This blustering, billowing, breezy, thing called  simply...wind
