Ode to the Wind

Ode to the Wind (07-170B)

The clever man
Man, try as he may
Wants to control
Control the wind

Wind from the prairie
Prairie so dry
Dry and thirsty for a sip
Sip of water on chapped lips

Lips that curse barren sky
Sky that brings praise
Praise to God for drizzling rain
Rain that is sparse

Sparse like the few watering holes
Holes hold water in the concrete ground
Ground drilled very deep
Deep to treasure
Treasure of water
Water and wind

Wind that pumps
Pumps life from the ground
Ground that supports
Supports a family now
