When Oh, When Ah

When water falls and wind blows
And birds fly up, flat to the blast,
And are borne high over
Mansion and meadow
To woods, their cover;
Then quiet at last;
When light lengthens, and grass greens,
And peace, old lover, kisses our world;
But wind of a sudden
Is wild in the trees,
And butterflies madden,
And birds whirl;
When oh, when ah, when what you may say,
Weather by weather, change arrives,
Look and listen
To all that is passing.
Wind is a wizard
With nine wives.
