Time To Go

The wind with words of wisdom

Whispered softly, “... time to go ...

For I have flown across the night

And I know what you don’t know ...”

But indifferently they lingered

And they kept their heads down low

They enjoyed the breeze and evening

While the wind said “... time to go ...”

So the wind with words of wisdom

Whispered softly, “ ... mustn't stay ...

For I have seen the long grass dance

This is not a place to play ...”

But once again they paid no mind

Ruthless, hot had been the day

And they now enjoyed the moonlight

While the wind said, “... mustn’t stay ...”

So the wind with words of wisdom

Whispered softly, “... let us run ...

For the fields are fast and light tonight

The chance is not yet done ...”

But the air was cool, the stars were bright

A gift that they’d earned, they’d won!

And danger seemed so far away

When the wind said, “... let us run ...”

So the wind with words of wisdom

Whispered softly, then was gone

And eventually heads lifted

“Perhaps we should be moving on ...”

Then came the dangerous from the grass

And soon after came the dawn

And now when the wind is whispering

No one waits until it’s gone
