Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

In life there are many fears, but I've come to believe that whatever brings on fear...I have to face it, and not run away from it. I believe I am never alone so I rely on God who gives me strength when I am so weak.

Fear Not The Wind

Fear not the fierce wind, o gentle heart
Though it may rattle the eaves
And give no ear to its whispers with nothing to impart
But shallow promises that hang, like dried, parched leaves

Listen to its mournful wails on the way to some distant shore
Leaving in its trail, the harsh rawness of a chill
And envy not; give pity instead and be sure to keep no scores
For the warmth of a gentle heart is by far, richer still

For who can fathom the baleful howls invading valleys below;
Billowing across the fragile earth and her boundless seas?
Is it in anguish that it protests; who can really know?
Or is it a mere expression of a mighty power that seethes?

Yet, judge not, o gentle heart, but like a blade of grass amidst a storm
Lay calmly into the wind; rely not upon your strength to stay strong

    Straight to my fav goes this beauty. A truly awe inspiring write! All great verses but this struck me strongly "And envy not; give pity instead and be sure to keep no scores For the warmth of a gentle heart is by far, richer still" Could not agree more! A blessed write my friend!

    first of all I wanted to say the sensory was amazing, the word choice was unique, intriguing, and powerful all at the same time, seriously you have a lot of talent, and I hope to read more. The only suggestion I would make is to perhaps tweak the first stanza to : "Fear not the fierce wind, o gentle heart Though it may rattle the eaves, And give to you no ear, for it whispers with nothing to impart But shallow promises that hang, like dried, parched leaves"

    Thanks for this message of hope, knowing that there is a greater power to rely on, as mine is puny and pales in comparison. A beautiful poem from a wonderful lady. One love. Joy Wells
