Who Has Seen the Wind?

Christina Rossetti is a poet whose work I love.  This poem was one I had to learn at school. I was dismissive of the exercise back then but it amazes me how many snatches of poetry keep coming back to me.

Who Has Seen the Wind?blogchristinarossetti
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.
Christina Rossetti
