The Wind :
I saw you toss the kites on high
And blow the birds about the sky.
And all around I heard you pass.
Like ladies’ skirts across the grass –
Oh! Wind, a blowing a ll day long,
Oh! Wind, that sings so loud a song!
I saw the different things you did,
But always you yourself you hid.
I felt you push, I heard you call,
I could not see yourself at all –
Oh! Wind a blowing all day long,
Oh! Wind, that sings so louid a song!
O you that are so strong and cold,
O blower, are you young or old?
Are you a beast of field and tree,
Or just a stronger child than me?
O wind, a blowing all day long,
O Wind, that sings so loud a song!
