A Windy Night
I love to listen to a windy night
Shaking the house all around.
Why then are people so scared?
It’s just a few silly sounds.
Life is full of scary peaks and valleys
Like some frightening carnival ride.
Taking time away in chips and chunks
Moving along, setting you aside.
Scary things like lightning and sharks
Or some monsters under your bed
Steal your mind away from silly things
Like taxes, or what happens when you're dead.
When I listen to a windy night
I don't think about any kind of end.
All I have to do is sit and listen
To the house bow and bend.

In his Masterclass Billy Collins touches on a few fundamentals in poetry that were very helpful and easy to incorporate into my writing. I love his lectures as well as Masterclass in general and I highly recommend checking it out!
