A Windy Night


If I were a kite

last night

I would have been

dancing in the dark

weaving in branches

and having a lark

with washing

making dogs bark


I was

hiding under the covers


to the whoop and howl

of the wind

I even jumped

when it blew

the window


and rushed

in like a speeding train


I closed it again
