lsland Breezes....English Sonnet

Island breezes rush by me bringing news
I hear them whisper in the mango tree
As softly as the gentle lover woos,
And mesmerized I listen carefully;
But before I catch what they are saying
In the blink of an eye they're off again
Rustling leaves and branches, almost playing,
And ere long followed by a cooling rain.
I like to think that messages are borne
Upon winds as they blow from place to place,
That leave folks joyous or at times forlorn
One never knows which one will be the case.
Island breezes what tidings do you bring
Come tell me everything that's happening.
