I Want Not – 03: The Strength


I want not

that strength of a storm

that never settles a home,

that never houses a bird,

that never pats a back

of the weak or feeble,

that seldom explores a land

mysterious, strange or unknown,

that rarely builds up a dune

over the valleys of life

under the vast stretching

desert sky.

Rather I would be

The mild autumn breeze

That fills, chills and thrills

life in many,

soothes the heart of lovers

heals the aching minds

And flies the dry leaves

off the ant-hills

by the forest path.
