This is a simple riddle I thought up a while ago:
I'm tossed by the wind that blows about,
I trip on hills and mountains too,
I like to cry and weep and pout,
But when I'm angry, watch please do,
I take my hammer, beat my drum,
And all the world hears me pound,
My melody is rough and deep,
My angry tears are running down,
With my arms, I take down trees,
I slap water, house and flag,
All with limbs that snake and writhe,
(Please do not mind, I like to brag.)
I do this all with darkened face,
But when I'm happy, you behold,
My face is light and pure and glad!
I'm always happy! Never sad!
And though through dusk, we come to nigh,
I still walk gently up on high,
And now I ask you, will you try,
To find my riddle: What am I?
