O' the Northwest winds of Spring
Poetry by Billy Joe Fudge
O' the Northwest winds of Spring,
Come blowing through dry and clean.
Leaves upon petioles wring,
Showing backsides whited green.

O the Northwest winds so cool,
Lifting spirits through and through.
Winds painting skies clear and blue
Remind us of God anew.
By Billy Joe Fudge, Sun 03 Jun 2018.
