a waking wind

in the dead
of night
the sleeper wakes
to the whistling wind

woo woo-woo

from a journey
to Antarctica

woo woo-woo

sleep on

in the soft light
of a new day
the sleeper wakes
to a pattering

woo woo-woo

rain has come
dragged behind the flaring skirt
of a whistling wind

woo woo-woo

sleep on

sleep on
