Read full description of the books Wind Song:
Most of these just didn't work for me. Sometimes, imo, the fragments would have been better in original context. But I do know mostly that's just me - we all should read more Sandburg poetry. Next up for me, though, is a reread of Rootabaga Stories.
I do quite like the below. I think it would make a great song... maybe by the Albertan k.d. lang?
BABY SONG OF THE FOUR WINDS
Let me be your baby, south wind.
Rock me, let me rock, rock me now.
Rock me low, rock me warm.
Let me be your baby.
Comb my hair, west wind.
Comb me with a cowlick.
Or let me go with a pompadour.
Come on, west wind, make me your baby.
North wind, shake me where I'm foolish.
Shake me loose and change my ways.
Cool my ear with a blue sea wind.
I'm your baby, make me behave.
And you, east wind, what can I ask?
A fog comfort? A fog to tuck me in?
Fix me so and let me sleep.
I'm your baby--and I always was.
