Background Heading Main Poetry Index Our Language Index Seasons/Weather Poems Rain - A Simile Poem Mr Wind's Little Games



Wind – Slowly drifting, wafting, quavering -

Like the sighing and whispering of leaves in the trees.


Wind – as lively and changeable as a child’s mind

Flish-flash, flish-flash from one subject to the next.


Wind – tugging, yanking, straining, jerking -

Like a dog seeking freedom from its lead.


Wind – as teasing and annoying as

That alarm clock that awakens you too early.


Wind – roaring, blustering, screaming, ranting -

Like a wild banshee heralding death.


Wind – as cooling, refreshing  and invigorating -

As the iced lollipop that melts on your tongue.


Wind – purposefully, steadily, meaningfully moving –

Like an aeroplane journeying through the sky.


Wind – as necessary and life-giving as human breath –

Breathing life into our wonderful world.
