The Northwind is not very nice.
It blows strong and cold across the ice.
Over the water and over the seas,
It brings the Springtime and buds to the trees.
The Northwind is not very courteous.
As it blows the sea becomes fierce and tempestuous.
The sailboats are happy as can be,
To know the Northwind is coming over the sea.
The Northwind can be very shy,
As it blows the winter blues to the sky.
The buds on the trees it brings,
And the birds on their branches they sing.
The Northwind can really sting.
It blows all winter waiting for Spring
Bringing Spring’s warm and gentle gusts
The Northwind’s memory fades to dust.
