Poem by Lola Ridge


North Wind


I love you, malcontent
Male wind -
Shaking the pollen from a flower
Or hurling the sea backward from the grinning sand.

Blow on and over my dreams
Scatter my sick dreams
Throw your lusty arms about me
Envelop all my hot body
Carry me to pine forests -
Great, rough-bearded forests
Bring me to stark plains and steppes
I would have the North to-night -
The cold, enduring North.

And if we should meet the Snow,
Whirling in spirals,
And he should blind my eyes
Ally, you will defend me -
You will hold me close,
Blowing on my eyelids.
