Summer is upon us and the time for appreciating the outdoors is here once again. Imagine the warm, soft, breezes tickling the wind chimes while you sit back and enjoy your beverage of choice. Ah, life is good.
Have a “wicked pissah” Wednesday everyone. Go Bruins!
I cannot face
the northern wind,
and hear the wind chime’s song.
For only from the southwest breeze
will they go ding and dong.
Then the chickadee
will sing for me,
and I will sing along.
As the warming flow
brings back to life
nature’s gifts abound,
then life is good when I chance to hear,
the gentle wind chime’s sound.
And it sets a-whirl
my mind unfurled,
in this peaceful spot, I’ve found.
The summer air
has come at last
and chased the frost away.
Zephyrs touch upon the strings
and put them in a sway.
Then all trouble’s eased
and my spirit’s pleased,
when I hear the wind chimes play.
