Poetry Friday: A Mood by Winifred Howells

December 25th, 2015 (07:49 am)

Current Mood: accomplished
Current Song: Bookmark by Novelette

The wind exultant swept
Through the new leaves overhead,
Till at once my pulses leapt
With a life I thought long dead,
And I woke, as one who has slept,
To my childhood,-that had not fled,
On the wind my spirit flew;
Its freedom was mine as well.
For a moment the world was new;
What came there to break the spell?
The wind still freshly blew;
My spirit it was that fell.

I am swept away with "A Mood." Appreciations for it.
