Poetry Friday: Who Has Seen the Wind

wind

There have been lovely windy, late-summer days all week long. I can almost see the warmth blowing away a little bit more each day. I’ve always loved this little poem by Christina Rossetti:

Who Has Seen the Wind

Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.

    I love this. So simple and yet suggests the gentleness and the powerfulness of this invisible thing, the wind. Implications are enormous. Thank you! Melissa
