HIDDEN MESSAGE—IN “THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS”


 
 

HIDDEN MESSAGE,

by Jonathan Caswell

Simple book, yet not at all,

WIND IN THE WILLOWS with Nature’s call…

Rivers run with memories

Of swallows, rowboats, rats and trees.

 

Long forgotten but still there,

An urging for some different air

In unseen climes described for me

By siren song and poetry.

 

Will the gentle hero Rat succumb

To wayfaring tales spun aplomb…

His “narrow” life to be deferred

By dreams of wanderlust now stirred?

 

The visions coaxed by sea-ward rat

Of glorious freedom and all of that

Have caused Rat’s confidence unglued

To see his own life less valued.

 

For such a hint but little said,

Wayfaring rat had a family bred…

And when that life got really hard

He packed his bag and left his yard.

 

With shared luncheon he plied his trade

To lure the Rat to be afraid

Of missing what did mesmerize,

Those distant joys formed in his eyes.

 

Hooray for Mole, yet not afraid

To fight the spell wayfarer laid

Upon his friend who lost all sense

His love for Rat his recompense.

A longing stays within our hearts

Of freer days in distant parts

Forgetting all we have right here…

The ones who love and hold us dear.
