A Child's Own Book of Verse II by  Ada M. Skinner


 

 

MY LADY WIND

[10]

My Lady Wind is very tall,

As tall as she can be;

Her hands can shake the tallest bough

Upon the tallest tree,

And even reach up to the sky,

And twirl the clouds about,

And rattle them for thundering,

And shake the raindrops out.

And yet so light, so light she steps

Upon the flowers and grass,

They only need to bow their heads

To let my lady pass.


You cannot see my Lady Wind,

Though you can hear her plain,

And watch her tread the clovers down

That rise so quick again.

And I know just how she would look,

So tall and full of grace,

With bright hair streaming out behind,

And such a lovely face!


My Lady Wind is grand and strong,

And yet so full of glee,

She almost says, "My little maid,

Come, have a race with me."
