Footprints in the Windsm # 1823–The wind comes to you

Footprints in the Windsm # 1823

The wind comes to you
always comes to you
without music, strong, often gentle
you need not go to it
its music is only with
—the old house’s windows
—the barn door creaking, banging
—the inside of a flute sorrowing
with, only with, needs another
comes to you
comes in silence, concert, keening

Please pass it on.
