Free as the Wind

Free as the Wind

A Poem by Matthew Green

 

I used to dream of being free

free as only the wind can be.

 

Free to glide wherever he will.

No responsibilities keep him pinned,

no prison holds him still.

 

Free to strip the leaves from trees,

to chase the clouds across the skies;

to be a gale or a breeze

that brushes passer-bys.

 

And yet, if nothing holds the wind,

does no-one hug him when he cries,

As my mother would hug me?

Does no-one truly love that breeze,

enough to hold him still?

This is a really nice sonnet. I love poems about the wind, as they seem so capricious and venting to the spirit!

That's really nice. You like talking about freedom, and how no one really wants it, don't you?
