I Am Wind


I am Wind, have you a clue
What the Mighty Wind can do?
Even though I can’t be seen,
I can rage and vent my spleen.
 
I am Wind, I huff and puff;
When you think you’ve had enough,
I’m prepared to give you more:
Stand back, friend, and hear me roar!
 
Roar and huff and puff I will
Till you think you’ve had your fill,
Then I’ll huff and puff some more:
I’m the Storm Wind, hear me roar!
 
Hear me roar, and hear me rage
Like a lion in a cage!
With my hot and fearsome breath
I will harry you to death.
 
I will strip your bones of meat;
From my breath you can’t retreat.
From my roar you cannot flee;
I’m the Storm Wind—bow to me!
 
Bow to me, give me my due!
Bow, and if you have no clue
How to show more deference,
I’ll fling you against the fence!

No Clue


Just what can a blue lion do?
To tell you the truth, I’ve no clue.
I’ve never seen one,
Nor has my young son,
Who knows every beast in the zoo.

Blue Monday: Lemons

DSC_0239 (2)
A mural honoring lemon growers, Exeter, California.
 


The lemons in my basket
Are plump and ripe—not sweet!
But still my lovely lemons
Are good enough to eat!
 
If you’d prefer a mango,
There’s not much I can do,
For all these lovely lemons
Were gathered just for you!

A Lantern Made of Whiskey


A lantern made of whiskey,
A subway made of glass,
A sari made of tea leaves,
A toothbrush made of brass—
 
I found them in the bakery
On Smashing Dingo Street;
From chains they were a-dangling,
And tempting me to eat.
 
But I took out my compass—
See! Dandelions bloom!—
And sought the nearest exit
From that enchanted room.
 
I found it in a heartbeat,
I took it mighty fast,
I slammed the door behind me,
And then felt safe at last.
