Who Has Seen The Wind?

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.

Wow - this is one poem I had to learn in grade school age around 8 and I still remember it, Couldn't remember the author. I had to look it up. Cant believe I still can resite it
What a nice poem I liked it I have to draw an illustration for this poem when i was in 5th grade.
When I was in junior school I was asked to recite this poem and on completion I was given a extra bottle of milk which in my school days was distriubed to all pupils
Had this poem for homework and lost the page. So glad I could find it on Google. Doing my homework and listening to Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears (:
Quoted in Carson McCullers short story Who Has Seen The Wind. I tracked down the verse today.
