The wind, counting

     Who can ever forget
     listening to the wind go by
     counting its money
     and throwing it away?

These lines come from "Wind Song" by Carl Sandburg (1878-1967), found in The Complete Poems of Carl Sandburg (Houghton Mifflin, 2003).  An alert to this poem of childhood dreaming was sent to me by mathematician-poet Robert Gethner whose poem "The Universal Language" was featured on July 11
