Winds of Change

Winds of Change
.

.
When first the seasons change,

I hear the howling wind

Just slightly out of range,

Of hopes that once were pinned.

.
I hear the howling wind

Blowing a long sad song,

Of hopes that once were pinned

On dreams that came along.

.
Blowing a long sad song

That sounds so very strange,

On dreams that came along

On the wind, Wind of Change.

.
That sounds so very strange,

An unrelenting blow,

On the wind, Wind of Change.

Alters courses you go.

.
An unrelenting blow

Will make you rearrange.

Alters courses you go,

When first the seasons change.

.

Author Notes

Like the changing season, sometimes we have to change too, in the face of shattered dreams. Sometimes that’s just growing up. Other times it’s just facing reality. Celebrate the changes carried on the wind.


This poem is a Pantuom. A pantoum is a poem that is made up of quatrains. In a pantoum the second and fourth lines of the previous stanza are repeated as the first and third lines of the next stanza. I also repeated the first line as the last line. The tempo of the verse is to a syllable count of 6. The rhyme scheme is abab.
