What A Fool, The Wind!
A wind that night had brought a friend
And with him he had fluttered by
A sheet of white a crystal snow
And dropped it all beneath the sky
By shield of night is how he came
And dropped each flurry flake by flake
Who dared not make a rustle sound
For fear the village would awake
But wind was blind to what i knew
That while he worked his stealthy thing
That was awake and watching, too
And by daybreak told them everything
I bet he wondered how it was
That all the men had known his ties
To all the snow was midnight dropped
Below the sparkled, deep black skies
And sure! i like the wind 'till now
(He'd help me run my way to school)
But thought his slyness was so young
And thought him since as just a fool...
