Who Has Seen The Wind

by Joni Mitchell

Who has seen the wind
Scalloping the sea
Or gliding like a swallow
Over villages and trees?
"I have," said the willow
"And I begged him please to stay
But he went away
He went on his own one day.

And I sing, "One love have I"
And he sings "Now it's good-bye"
And I sing, "Part of me dies
Until I see you again."

Who has seen the sun
Through a parasol of leaves
Through scattered ruby cloud fires
Through the silver wings of bees
"I have," said the waters
"And I held his face to mine,
But he left in time
He went in his own good time."

Who has seen the stranger
In a coat of simple brown
With his face of many faces
With his eyes turned out of town
I have, and I kissed him
And I begged him please to stay
But he went away
With the sun and the wind away.
