Poetry Monday: The season changes, we bow our heads

I don’t recall the first Christina Rossetti poem I read was; it wasn’t one of her usual ones. Even now, I can’t think of what it is or what I loved about it, except it caught my heart and sent it soaring through ideas.

Today’s Poetry Monday selection seems appropriate, given the changes in season, winds tossing leaves and lives around.

Who Has Seen the Wind?

by Christina Rossetti

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.
