About cold, blustery days such as today with leaves flying and birds fighting the wind-
Theodore Roethke- "A steady storm of correspondences! A night flowing with birds-"
And this-"The bones of weeds kept swinging in the wind."
Percy Bysshe Shelley-
"Oh wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being,
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing,"
Poems quoted in order were Roethke's "In a Dark Time" and "It was Beginning Winter".
"Ode to the West Wind", by Shelley
