Wind Poems

This is a set of three poems by Christina Rosetti: The Wind, Storm Wind and Whistling Wind. There are rich examples of personification, not just of the wind but of the sea and the waves. Children can discuss the powerful verbs that are used. Easy to memorise and recite, children could bring these poems to life using instruments or any other objects to produce sound and atmosphere.
