Who Has Seen the Wind - Christina Rossetti

Who Has Seen the Wind?

By Christina Rossetti

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
