Autumn Equinox, Hector and Christina Rosetti

It’s been a blowy wet day for the Autumn Equinox and the BBC have kept us entertained with  Autumn poems at various time of the day.

I am not a dog lover but three dogs have won me over. Yesterday it was Thyme, a gentle and very sweet Greyhound, today it was Hector, a very lovely Spaniel in the Osteopath’s office and Kaja, a Golden Labrador, is a long time favourite.


This morning Radio 4 played Christina Rosetti’s poem, Who Has Seen the Wind?  talking about the beauty of that which we cannot see:

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.
I learned this by heart as a child but didn’t then understand what it was all about. It was lovely to hear it again this morning.
