Listen to the Wind

by Paul Steven Stone


Listen to the wind,

the fleeting wind.

Listen to it letting go

the sadness stirring far below.

Listen to the wind

the fleeting wind.

Be like me, the wind said. Never linger over sorrow, never cling to sadness. When I was a child I would run up against walls and stop, just like you, boy. But now I know better and leap from one obstruction to the next as if they were stepping stones.

Be like me, the wind said, and pass quickly over the obstacles in your life.

Listen to the wind,

the rushing wind.

Listen to it hurrying by

like a brakeless train

across the nighttime sky.

Listen to the wind

the rushing wind.

Be like me, the wind said, and never slow down to doubt yourself. When I was a child, boy, I would question where I was going, just like you. But now I know better, and only slow down to rustle leaves and scatter seeds.

Be like me, the wind said, and never slow down to doubt yourself.

Listen to the wind,

the stoic wind.

Listen to it hide the moon

and whistle up a cloudless tune.

Listen to the wind

the stoic wind.

Be like me, the wind said. I never mind the darkness, never ache to see the sun shining in its sky. When I was a child I would fret over clouds, just like you, boy, and spend my energy trying to keep the sun shining through. But now I know that clouds have a rightful place in the sky.

Be like me, the wind said, and learn to live with clouds in your life.

Listen to the wind,

the playful wind.

Listen to it shake the trees

with laughter rustling in the breeze.

Listen to the wind

the playful wind.

Be like me, the wind said, and never take yourself too seriously. When I was a child, I would puff myself up with my own importance, just like you, boy. But now I know that every tree I bend down will only straighten itself once I’m gone.

Be like me, the wind said, and enjoy the game while you can.

Listen to the wind,

the fleeting wind.

Listen to it setting free

the shadows of your misery.

Listen to the wind

the fleeting wind.
