North American Dreaming: On Wing and Wind

In William Burkholder's poem a message of longing flies on the wind to an absent lover.

A soft spoken melody,
Whispered,
On wing and the wind,
It would fly so sweetly,

Standing upon,
A wind blown shore,
She calls to him,
She cry's his name,

Starlit skies,
Beckoning his return,
She waits,
Calling,

She claims thine heart,
Yearning,
To meet the night,
And his returning,

From a storm tossed sea,
Where no remnant of wreckage,
Or rigging can be seen,

She calls to him,
This melody,
Whispered,

Her Love,
On wing and wind,
ft would fly so sweetly,

Calling,

Calling,

Calling.
