The winds have been chuntering all of the day,
I can’t perceive wind-speak to know what they say.
There’s been some drama,
I heard it gasp,
Pain & suffering,
I heard it rasp,
Lots of sorrow was cried in howls,
Much later, horror! It turned to yowls!
It whirled & swirled with whooshing power,
Its frightful circling made me cower!
Still; all at once, an eerie calm,
It caused me some concerned alarm!
I thought it whispered through the door,
I’m sure it breathed out through the floor!
All quiet in the aftermath
Then, suddenly, crudely, I heard it laugh!

The strong wind has been felt by much of the country, over the past few days. The sounds, as it blows through buildings, trees, hedges etc, can be quite startling, at times, but it has its own kind of music. The catkins in the hedgerows have been dancing away merrily, to its tune!
