The Wind Whispers, The Wind Sighs

- after Longfellow

The wind whispers, the wind sighs,
The dawn light brightens, a magpie cries;
Amongst the gum trees tall and green
A girl becomes a faerie queen,
   And the wind whispers, the wind sighs.

Morning settles beneath silk skies,
Her reign flits by like dragonflies;
Deep shadows dress the naked hill
At dusk, her faerie wings fall still,
   And the wind whispers, the wind sighs.

Night throws a cloak; a barn owl cries,
Another answers, stars blink their eyes.
The queen is gone, won’t come again;
The woods forever will remain,
   And the wind whispers, the wind sighs.

Hi, Regina. Thank you for your kind words. Yes, we’re all doing well thank you. I’ve actually found a lot of joy in homeschooling my two boys. I’ll be quite sad when it’s time for them to return to school. Thank you for thinking of me. I hope everything is well with you and your loved ones also.
