The food of poetry...
Does anyone know?
When sun shines down
How do trees grow?
When bugs find food
How do they eat?
Or how do soul mates
Finally meet?
When puppies grow up
How do they see?
How did America
Become free?
How do fish
Swim in the ocean?
How did Einstein
Have his first notion?
How do clouds
Hang in the sky?
When did birds
First learn to fly?
How does the sun
Give a spotlight
When the moon sings
To Earth in the night?
How do stories
Swirl in our heads?
How does everyone
End up dead?
Why do we wonder,
Why do we love?
Why do we believe
In a place above?
How does fruit taste
On our pink tongues?
Why are we excited
When stockings are hung?
How does our pain
Counter our joy?
Why do we remember
Our childhood toys?
How do all humans
Really percieve?
How do they have
Something to believe?
The answer to these
Is a small word
Whispered to me
From a small bird.
