Subject(s): Home; Nature; Wind


O WIND, you will not break my house;
Though you come to my house in bodily form,
Though you tramp on the doorstep and over the stone,
Though you knock on my roof and my window with storm.

O Wind, though you lift your mischievous hand,
Rubbing your smooth palm over my door,
Though your elbows nudge the wall of my room,
Though you hum with contentment over my floor, --

O Wind, you will not break my house;
Your mirth will not shake the resting beams;
For a slow and a careful Carpenter
Built me my house, -- my house of dreams.
