Don't Whisper to the Wind

Poetry By: meenakshi sharma

A poem/song often told to small children by the superstitous.
Though this piece is often heard most often in human Santharian villages,
it is believed to have originated from stories of the Forbidden Zone
in Northern Sarvonia and dark places like the Water Marshes.

do not whisper to the wind

Do not whisper to the wind,
For wind winds far and deep,
Deep down into the shadow land
Where evil creatures sleep.
The echo of thy uttered word
Can wake them, make them creep!

Do not whisper to the wind,
For seething monsters hear;
The winds will carry monologues
To meet their careful ears,
And they will rise up from their tombs
To plague the world with fear.

Do not whisper to the wind
For demons know, they say,
Where rests thy sleepy, pretty head
When darkness swallows day,
And in the night they'll come on thee
And steal thy soul away!

Do not whisper to the wind,
For evil's waiting there
With anxious claws and open ears
Just listening to the air.
And waiting for a foolish child
To whisper unaware.

Do not whisper to the wind,
For beasts come leather skinned
With eyes aglow in sickly hue
And figures tall and thinned.
Thou may not, shall not, cannot
Ever whisper to the wind!
