Happy Monday: Poetry to Start the Week

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.

-Christina G. Rossetti

 

Good morning and happy Monday! I have a chalkboard in my kitchen were I typically write inspirational quotes for my family to see throughout the week. Sometimes I get my boys to memorize them and other times, just explain the message. But when cleaning out a drawer in my laundry room I came across this old poetry book for kids I had bought many years ago. So after taking a peek, I selected this poem to write on our board for the week. I feel like it’s perfect for this time of year as the leaves turn and the wind sends them on a roller coaster ride to the earth. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Have a wonderful day!

Belinda
