I Long For The South Wind


I long for the south wind, blowing fair.
off of the Gulf, gently through my hair.

I long for the scented breezes of Spring,
I long for the Mockingbirds that sweetly sing.

I long for new grass from the Earth,
For swollen seeds bringing new birth.

I long for the sun high in the sky,
And fluffy clouds that gently fly.

I long for Spring and warm dry feet,
I hate the cold, I long for heat.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
