The Wind | Robert Louis Stevenson, 1913

Ethel Spowers, Kites, 1936

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-- 
                  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 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!

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894), The Wind
A Child’s Garden of Verses and Underwoods, 1913
