WHO HAS SEEN THE WIND?, a poem by Christina Rossetti


PHOTO: The garden. By Blanca Langa



















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.

HEART, WE WILL FORGET HIM, a poema by Emily Dickinson

  Heart, we will forget him,
you and I, tonight!
You must forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done pray tell me,
then I, my thoughts, will dim.
Haste! ´lest while you´re lagging
I may remember him.

  Emily Dickinson
