Indeed, sometimes the wind forms bland sand. Does he (this man) have sad memories of his lost lover >> breaking up or more sad that his lover disappeared. So he's still missing or wants to take her home. This is sad..

Wondering if L1 is referring to some sand art picture of a beautiful woman.

'wind-carved sand'

must be a natural image of a lady formed by the wind and which needs a few more revision work to be done.

And then the poet takes the help of a bayberry leaf to bring her back.


Just my thoughts. I would like to read from the horse's mouth.

Reads good, but I'm a bit lost here. Who is the 'she'?
