What am I?

A Poem By Anna // 7/20/2009

What am I?

I snatch your words, rattle them, and banish them to silence.

I fill sails, drive waves,

Pin clouds in the sky.

I play in the trees and flirt with the rain,

Singing songs no one can capture.

I am like a thread of time-

You cannot cage me, cannot hold me…

Yet you feel me.

I am strong.

I am gentle.

Flee my fury!

Embrace my caress.

I am unpredictable,

Flighty,

Fleet.

I raise the sun from its bed and send it home again.

My mind is too changeable;

Trust me not or leave yourself to my whims.

Run from me! …No-

Dance with me.

I am cold, so cold.

Hear my song, long and mourn with me.

Do you pity or tremble?

What am I?

I am the wind.

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief

Ah, yes. Those could both be

Ah, yes. Those could both be rather important. Carry on--and tell Cala to hurry up and Elvina to keep brainstorming.
