“The Busy Wind”

The wind blew low, the wind blew high,
And sang “a worker strong am I!
I sway the treetops to and fro,
I dry the clothes as I blow, blow, blow.”
2. “The ships are waiting on the sea,
They spread their big white sails for me!
For I, the wind, make ships to go
Across the waves as I blow, blow, blow.”
3. “Good Miller, haste to start your mill!
No logger need the wheels stand still,
I’ll push the windmill’s sails and go
We’ll grind the grain as I blow, blow, blow.”
4. “Come children bring your kites to fly!
We’ll have a frolic you and I.
For ev’ry kite aloft shall go,
And sail and sail as I blow, blow, blow”
