"The Merry Wind"


     
 
1.

The wind, one gusty morning,
Went blowing thro' the world.
The leaves, the dust, the weathervanes
Right merrily he whirled.

     
 
2.

He rushed to meet the children
And tugged at ev'ry hat.
He shook their clothes, he tossed their hair,
(He likes such tricks as that!)

     
  3.

He turned their paper windmills,
Their kites on high he sent;
But no one saw the merry wind,
As thro' the world he went.
