NEVER SAYING PLEASE 

By Josie Whitehead

Never Saying Please

The wind swept over the ocean;
     The wind swept over the trees;
The wind swept over the chimney tops - -
     But it never once said 'please.'

The rain washed down on the rooftops;
     The rain washed down on the seas;
The rain washed streets and pavements - - 
     But it never once said 'please.'

The fog crept over the hilltops 
     And it hugged my hands and my knees.
The fog hid the sun high up in the sky - - 
     But it never once said 'please.'

The snow fell over the gardens
      And coated the hedge and the trees.
The snow made everything clean and white - - 
       But - - - - -  it never once said:  '. . . . . . . '

 

                                                  'p l e a s e  .'
