So many things flow with the wind.

Whispers and secrets swirling with the autumn leaves,

Far-away laughter and the sounds of the ice-cream truck,

The smell of summer with the promise of the spring,

Oh, so many things flow with the wind!

Time does too; it flows with the wind.

The whispers aren’t heard anymore and secrets are forgotten,

Laughter is gone with the people who left and the ice-cream truck no longer comes to your lane,

The doom of the winter calls and so does the gloom of the rain.

Oh, so many things go away with the wind …
