56th Weekly Poetry Contest winner: Oh, Wind...

by Rie Sheridan Rose

I cannot follow you today…
Though you caress my cheek
And whisper promises.
Your touch a welcome thing
As the jealous sun beats down
From his high seat.
I cannot follow you today…
My heart downcast by care and worry,
Though you tease my hair and beckon.
I imagine the delights we’d share
As you led me forward to adventure.
But duty bids me stay confined.
Watching through glass
As you gambol through the trees.
Oh, Wind…I cannot follow you today.
