Wind of Discontent

There's a westerly wind that sweeps down the shore
Riding roughshod, through the furrowed maze
Plowing the seas with a lofty oar
To justify each thrashing wave

Unwilling to pulse with calmer mood
Her temperament bodes malcontent
Unrelentingly, earnest, she herds her brood
And prods them along with grave torment

Rendering helpless, behind the spray
The sun watches with solemn round
While quivering waters define dismay
She holds long the seasonal sound

From the sphere of the dawn, into bold afternoon
She is schooled by the whims of the moon

    The flow of this poem is just beautiful, Carrie! I also love the rhyme scheme that you used, I write most of my rhyming poems in the same way. It seems to be a rare writing style. Excellent work on this piece!...Thank you for the kind comments. They mean so much to me!
