Have you ever seen the wind?
Have you seen leaves blowing,
or the grass swaying?
If you have, then you must have seen the wind.
Have you ever heard the wind?
Have you ever heard trees
or branches rubbing against the windows?
If you have, then you must have heard the wind.
Have you ever felt the wind?
Have you ever got a chill? It could be from the wind.
or have felt breeze on a cool summer night?
If you have, then you must have felt the wind.
Have you ever had a shiver by the seaside,
or have you ever got blown away by the wind?
If you have then you must have seen, heard and felt the wind.

Nature's most scenic call,
the Adirondacks in the fall.
Picture perfect pageantry,
a delight for the eyes to see.
Ruby red, glistening gold,
outrageous orange to behold.
Bright sky above snow-capped peaks,
a cool breeze on my rosy cheeks.
Cold springs so crystal clear.
Hiking on the wooded trails,
up the hills and down the dales.
-- Timothy Hayes
Leaves, leaves red and brown,
The leaves are falling all around.
Leaves, leaves orange and brown,
The leaves are falling all around town.
Leaves, leaves purple and brown,
Everybody look what I have found.
-- Monica Biggie
