The Call of the Wind

The Rath in Glendalough

I have listed this as ‘Poem’, and I think it does work as a poem, but when I originally wrote it, I wrote it as a song. And strangely, I had in my head an Irish voice singing it, slow and haunting. So, read it as you will, song or poem – I’d be interested to know how it works for you ๐Ÿ™‚

The wind is calling,
Calling for me to join her:
To join her song of the Land
For do I not belong here anymore,ย 
Here, on Mortal Sands?
And I follow my heart blindly
Wherever she may go
For even with eyes open
I did not see friends turn traitor
And I did not see them go.
So follow I blindly
To the call oโ€™ the land
With open heart but closed eyes
Will I leave this Mortal Land.
And the wind is callinโ€™,
Pulling my heart along
And what resistance have I
To that sad and lonely song?

  1. Beautiful…..

  2. music and all creative arts are within, the seasons, the emotions the colors the beauty everything is within and it makes oneself a beautiful being ๐Ÿ™‚ reading your poem is liking floating at leisure in cool running peaceful water with the waves——— simply lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Have you written the melody, the tune? This is hauntingly beautiful.

    • Thank you! Unfortunately, I am not musically talented; I can’t read music, I can’t play a single instrument, I can’t even sing particularly well! Sometimes I just come up with lyrics and hear the music in my head… which is where it will stay I guess, lol!

      • Yes, but you hear it in your head. That’s the source. Somehow you can get that translated. It’s just a thought. Maybe you’ll stumble upon a collaborator. Toss the thought out there if you wishโ€”it just might be picked up.

      • ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks v much eM, it’s a good thought. I’m heartened that you think it worth following up!
