"The Wind"

I am the Wind 
I creep and crawl through every swamp and valley 
Touching every leaf and holding every branch 
Surrounding every rock and cooling every stream 
Playing with the leaves that dance on my shoulders 

I am the Wind. 
I cradle nature's breath in my arms 
Rocking it back and forth 
Singing to it my sweet lullaby 
Kissing its tender face with my gentle breeze 

I am the Wind. 
I instruct the tall grass to bow before me 
Ruling over the leaves and governing the water 
Telling the rain when to fall 
Commanding even the waves of the ocean to obey me 

I am the Wind. 
Nature has given me more than one task 
I work to complete them all 
I fly with the birds and run with the cheetahs 
I guard the baby as she sleeps and watch over the dogs that howl at the moon  I play with the hair of a sleeping child 
I race the cars on the highway 
I dance around the corn fields at dusk 
I watch the world begin to slumber and am there at its waking 

I am the Wind. 
Tornados are mere toothpicks for my teeth 
Hurricanes are but drizzling rain 
Blizzards lose their footing without me as their foundation  Rooted as the source of storm and tempest, I will not budge 

I am the Wind. 
I hold the stars and stripes of many flags 
Helping the countries show them with pride 
I collide with the sails of boats 
Catching my feet they make me pull them along 

I am the Wind 
I pull the leaves off of the trees like apples 
Laying them carefully on the ground to sleep 
Letting them rest under a blanket of snow till they wake 

I am the Wind. 
I carry the seed of dandelions on my back 
Washing it with my breeze 
And planting it in the soft earth beneath my feet 
I cool it while I blow through pursed lips 
And bring clouds to quench its thirst 
Soon my work is done 

I am the Wind. 
Curling my fists at the mountains that stand in my way 
Disobeying the gravity of man 
Defying even life itself as I live on forever...
