The Wind Cries Jimi

My house is solidly built but still it creaks and groans when the winds are whipping up off the river.  Some nights, such as last night, I sometimes hear a sound or two that awakens me.  When that happens, this tune will always run thru my mind:
One explanation of Jimi's inspiration for the song is this poem To Mary by John Clare;

Ironically enough,  the song was released on 5 May 1967 (click here.)   Leads me to conclude that maybe Jimi was reaching out to me last nightYou know he was a Voodoo Child.
