It’s just the wind

Public Domain

Bitterly cold
Turning fingers white, noses red
It’s just the wind
Sending shivers down my spine
Something rushes by
It’s just the wind,
Rain pounding
Trees thrashing about
It’s just the wind
Were those men whistling at me?
As I walked down the street
It’s just the wind
Forceful destructive
Strong enough to knock you down
It’s just the wind
Gusts travelling at a hundred miles an hour
Leaving many without power
It’s just the wind
Changes in speed and direction
Causing tornadoes
It’s just the wind
Dust sweeping across the desert
Gritty sand everywhere

It’s just the wind
