Wind is a mighty thing.
It knocks down trees and makes flagpoles swing.
Wind is a gentle thing.
It blows through our hair and encourages the songbirds to sing.
Wind is a whimsical thing.
It makes the leaves dance and the wind chimes ring.
Wind makes music with the trees,
And fills our sails when we sail the seas.
Wind makes us want to fly
And it takes our kites, up to the sky.
Wind can give us courage,
And give us peace.
And without wind, these things would cease.
So let’s be grateful for the wind.
For she, is a wonderful thing.
