THE WIND
by Robert Louis Stevenson

I saw you toss the kites so high,
And blow the birds about in the sky:
And all around I heard you pass,
Like ladies' skirts across the grass-

O wind, a-blowing all day long,
O 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-

O wind, a-blowing all day long,
O wind, that sings so loud a song!

O you that are so strong and cold,
O blower, are you young or old?
Are you a beast of a field and tree,
or just stronger child than me?

O wind, a-blowing all day long,
O wind, that sings so loud a song!
