Wind, Fire, and Water

Wind, it comes and goes like the sun and moon
Wind, it cools you like an ice cream on the hottest day of summer
Wind, it freezes you alive and leaves you stiff, only to keep a frozen souvenir of you

Fire, it warms you to the core
Fire, it warms you to the bone when you come home from hours of snowball fights in the winter
Fire, can scorch your skin, burn you alive, and leave you as ashes

Water, it gives life and makes all of us possible
Water, it wets your whistle one days’ when you’re tired and dehydrated

I like how you give the positive things about wind and fire and then negate it on the last line of the stanza. But, you do pass iteration in this piece.
