Who Has Seen the Wind - 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.
Source: The Golden Book of Poetry (1947)
This is a wonderful poem for young children to learn - and would also be fun to teach with interpretive dance movements or sign language.
Traditionally, March is the month associated with wind, so I am late in getting this to you, but here is a great resource for homeschoolers or anyone who just wants to do a little extra as a family: Wind Lesson Plans.
Also Poetry Classics for Children
March might be known for wind, but April is National Poetry Month...so you're not late!
