Wind On The Hill

By

No one can tell me,
Nobody knows,
Where the wind comes from,
Where the wind goes.

It's flying from somewhere
As fast as it can,
I couldn't keep up with it,
Not if I ran.

But if I stopped holding
The string of my kite,
It would blow with the wind
For a day and a night.

And then when I found it,
Wherever it blew,
I should know that the wind
Had been going there too.

So then I could tell them
Where the wind goes…
But where the wind comes from
Nobody knows.

Such a vivid beautiful poem. Well described. I saw a picture of my daughter and her dad out in an open field, the wind blowing through her hair, and her a small tyke holding on to the kite string, looking up and feeling the fun adventures of flying the kite in the wind.
