Mr. Wind, Please Listen.

Updated on February 13, 2020

I dearly love a soft summer breeze, but this frigid wind has me writing a letter to Mr. Wind.

Mr. wind can you hear me?

Slow down and listen please

When you blow so fiercely

I demand you know, " it's not my cup of tea "

I love you when you send a sweet gentle breeze

I would embrace you except I'm about to freeze

I just returned from going to my mailbox, you lifted me higher than a kite

My fist's are doubled, I'm small, but I can still fight

So if you care about me including you in my love poems, you'll listen and take a deep breath

Exhale softly, saving me from freezing to death.

      Hi Lora. The wind listened to me, it's calm now! I found those sketches on Pixaby, they have free images. Thanks again...

      I love this poem about the wind, Ruby. I used to lived in the windiest city so I certainly can relate to your poem. Very witty writing that certainly brought a smile and thinking back on those days when that wind used to go right through me! I really liked your sketch as well. We have March coming up so that wind may not go anywhere soon! Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Ruby...

      There are times when Mother Nature definitely has an "attitude," and we wished that she would just cool her jets, so to speak. High winds are one. As Shakespeare might say, "Thy sting is sharp."

      I loved this...especially, "you'll listen and take a deep breath. Exhale softly." :-)

      That's a great poem. Yes, we need the wind to blow a gentle breeze. It's been blowing gales here in England just lately!

      Hello Mar, the sun is shinning brightly today, so my spirit is lifted ( Higher than a kite ) lol. Thanks for the hot chocolate. I guess Mr. wind listened, so I won't need the punching bag, but thanks anyway. I see a dove eating at my feeder, so that's a good sign that Spring is coming. Many thanks and lots of hugs. Oh I forgot to thank you for the Valentine card, your baby is adorable.

      Sending you a big mug of hot chocolate and some insulated "punching" gloves in case Mr. Wind keeps on blowing, dear Ruby.

      I am no fan of these frigid winds either - hoping for an early Spring as the Groundhog predicted.

      Have a cozy weekend. Love you, mar

      Hello Shauna. I know the feeling, I can't stand for the wind to mess up my hair either. The wind was soo strong it could have uprooted my hair lol. It was just a fun write after going outside to get the mail. Glad you thought it was cute. Thank you.

      Hello Umesh, I really had no idea of writing this until I went to the mailbox, and literally was picked up by the wind. It just popped in my head to tell he/she off. LOL I wasn't sure Hubpages would publish it, it's so nutty. I am glad you thought it was humorous. Thank you.

      Cute poem, Ruby. It gets pretty windy here sometimes. Fortunately, we don't have frigid temps in Central Florida, but strong winds can and do cause a lot of damage. Not to mention the fact that is messes up my hair! Ha ha

      I've spent some time in the Midwest, and one thing I remember clearly is the wind. It always seems to be blowing. You guys need some mountains to block it like we have. :)

      Oh, yes, by the way, I loved your poem. A warm breeze would be nice about now.
