Whispers in the Wind


The whispers in the wind
The stories that it tells
How I slowly grinned
While on the memories the mind dwells
While the waters flow away
From this side of the shore
When the leaf blows away
To the mountains of yore

A twig of memory breaks
And carried like the western salsify
And like the breezy life in its mid-day
Somewhere it just wants to lie

A whisper in your mind
Is all that remains of me
So many war bells rang and died
A hero that it could never be
