The Wind on the Moors

What is it about the wind on the moors
That makes you not mind
When it blows your hair into your mouth
And the water you're trying to drink out of your mouth
And the juice of the nectarine you're trying to eat everywhere else?
 
What is it about the wind on the moors
That makes your sandwich taste like the best thing ever
When you eat the same thing every Thursday
And it never tastes special at all?
 
What is it about the wind on the moors
That fills your head with poems
And stories
And songs
Some which already exist
And some which are your own?
 
What is it about the wind on the moors
That makes you feel like you could conquer the world
When in reality
You're not even sure
If you can survive Shakespeare camp?
 
What is it about the wind on the wind on the moors
That makes it the wind on the moors?
