Follow the Winds

I thought I heard a loverís call
In muffled notes of meadow lark
Amongst the field of windlestraw
As dawn invaded early dark

It was in gusts of morning breeze
That warbling notes addressed my name
Would this sweet serenade appease
The meadow lark from which it came

If I were to believe his word
And follow his alluring song
To know the truth of what I heard
Or come to find I heard it wrong

I put a candle to the wind
And followed north from whence it came
But it was from the south it spinned
The melodies that bore my name

And there I saw the meadow lark
Sitting on a weathered post
A silhouette in morning dark
A tiny lovely feathered host

How can this be, a chime that peals
Into the air against the wind
So strange a sight, and yet I feel
A warming sense of love within

And then I realized what I heard
A vision of a love so true
'Twas not a song of warbling bird
I turned around , and it was you

Elizabeth Santos

poetry in motion Liz,
this is so pretty read and ya know what the sweetest part is...(besides you)...
that there are all these poems in here that have been inspired by another poet...
thats what I love about this place (smile)
take care,jm

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

Light, lovely, and so beautiful Elizabeth.  You have such wonderful talent.
