If we can’t see the wind, how do we know it is there?

If we can’t see the wind, how do we know it is there?

  1. The wind is simply the air moving. Air is the gas all around us. Just imagine what it would be like if we could see the air! We would not be able to see anything else. It would be like fog all the time. So we can only know that the wind is there by seeing the effect it has. Recently we have had some very fast wind moving accross the country and I certailnly noticed its effect when a tree in my garden was pushed down by it!!

    Who has seen the wind?
    Neither I nor you:
    But when the leaves hang trembling
    The wind is passing thro’.

    Who has seen the wind?
    Neither you nor I:
    But when the trees bow down their heads
    The wind is passing by.

    A poem by Christina Rossetti.
