Ode To The Anemometer

Good morning weather-vane, do I see a twinkle in your eye?

Is it a blazing sun at high noon in a cloudless clear blue sky?

Or do you point towards warm winds that bring rumbling clouds this way

Can you smell the rain they bring with them to dampen our today?


Give us glad tidings, and following seas

Put us in touch with a light breeze

Watch over us as we sail along

Point us to the end of the rainbow….


Good morning weather-vane, what do you forecast this week?

Cumulus or cumulonimbus, playing hide and seek

With the sun, as it travels over us across the sky

Golden rays often shadowed as clouds pass it by?


Give us a heads up on what the days will bring

Put us in touch with fair winds

Smile down upon us as we sail along

Point us to the end of the rainbow….


Good morning weather-vane, look at your crystal ball

Will the heavens split wide open, will the mercury start to fall?

Will lightning dance and flash to the beat of thunder’s drum?

Will rain pour down in icy sheets, cold winds make us numb?


Give us a warm smile, and a friendly wave

Put us in touch with sunshine

Lift the dawn sun from the horizon

Point us to the end of the rainbow….


Good morning weather-vane, tell me what you know

Secrets on the breeze come to you for sure

Did you know that calm would follow, filled with golden light

Though hail and thunder deafened the watches of last night?


Give us good cheer, and your fond blessing

Put us in touch with a warm front

Heed a sailor’s prayer and his song

Point to us the end of the rainbow….
