Poems about Wind

by Dawn Pisturino


In French and English:

Au Vent                                                             To the Wind

Souffles, O vent,                                                Blow, O wind,

Dis à mon oreille                                               Speak into my ear

Un doux mot d’amour;                                     A sweet word of love;

Emportes mes rêves,                                         Carry away my dreams,

Rapportes mes souhaits,                                   Bring back my wishes,

Et n’oublies pas, pour toujours,                       And don’t forget, always,

Ὰ chanter une belle chanson.                            To sing a beautiful song.

5 mai 1985                                                           May 5, 1985

pour mon ami, J.J.                                              for my friend, J.J.



Wind, wind, holler and cry,

The windows are shaking, the doors want to fly!

The old tree is creaking, it surely must fall;

The chimney is cracking, bricks, mortar and all!

How everything shudders! I mustn’t delay:

We have, it would seem, a tornado today.

    Oh my goodness, Dawn, the second poem is all about today’s weather in Savannah! Storm winds, hail and possible tornados this afternoon.

  2. Dawn – the wind is my favorite, especially when it howls really low over the prairie. ❤️

    • I live in a valley surrounded by mountains and hills, so the wind comes through here like a wind tunnel. It can be very dangerous, in fact. But I agree with you, when it blows a little more calmly, it can be soothing and refreshing. And hearing that howling, especially at night, reminds me of old black and white movies with the old houses, creepy characters, creaking doors, and the howling wind! And then the coyotes start howling . . . magnificent!
