Song of Ecclesiastes

Original Text: 
Lush Dreams, Blue Exile: Fugitive Poems: 1978-1993 (Lawrencetown Beach, NS: Pottersfield Press, 1994): 82.
1     The wind chooses where song should fall,
2Where chaff should drift. The wind decides.
3The wind plunges toward the south,
4Then lunges again unto the north.
5The wind sifts sand through windows,
6Snow through black ash branches,
7Cold rain through graves and fields.
8The wind chooses, the wind decides.
