Here’s a lovely poem about The Wind by Robert Louis Stevenson with a couple of mp3 renditions.

MP3 of The Wind

2nd MP3 of The Wind

The Wind

 

I saw you toss the kites on highwind_in_trees

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!

1st Recording by Ezwa.

Many thanks to Oscar Teliz for pointing out this poem!
