I’ve seen granite exposed on mountain peaks
Glow from grey to rose to blue,
Even seagulls soar and pelicans glide
Over a sea with the rainbow’s hue.
But of all this world’s wonders,
I’ve known of nothing to compare

The stars sing.
And it is your beauty
That causes wind...

It's not just the curves of my woman;
but also her countenance and soft eyes
that causes me to feel like some seagull,
carried by wind, who over the ocean glides.
Yet what she possesses that's most precious

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in North
Platte , Nebraska , it was believed that he had nothing left of any
Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, They
found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that
copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.
And this little old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is
now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.
