And The Wind Wails

The sounds of loud wailing

drops down to low moaning

 

a chorus…

rising and falling

rising and falling

rising and falling

like waves upon the sea.

 

The sound of mourning

heard in the streets.

 

The wind wails for Egypt

In turn, she moans for Libya

And now today, she weeps and sobs…

for the islands of Japan
