The Winds Footsteps I marvel at the winds strange ways to travel far and wide The quiet footsteps - Boisterous ones The way he walks with pride across the busy city streets, on meadows, fields, and farms, along the lonely country lanes, The world within his arms He blows in fury - cold and rough without a thought of fear, while other times, he’s very meek and whispers in my ear. We never see this creature bold who fiercely marches in an yet we listen and we hear. The footsteps of the wind.
