Pirate Wind by Mary Jane Carr

 

 

Pirate Wind

The autumn wind's a pirate,
  Blustering in from sea;
With a rollicking song, he sweeps along,
  Swaggering boist'rously.

His skin is weather-beaten;
  He wears a yellow sash,
With a handkerchief red about his head.
  And a bristling black mustache.

He laughs as he storms the country,
  A loud laugh and a bold;
And the trees all quake and shiver and shake,
  As he robs them of their gold.

The autumn wind's a pirate,
  Pillaging just for fun;
He'll snatch your hat as quick as that,
  And laugh to see you run!
