Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

I Wonder

I Wonder Why...
The sky is blue and the clouds are white
Why the moon is dim and the sun is bright
Why the mountains are high and the valleys are low
And why the birds can fly and the roosters can crow

I Wonder Why...
Trees live to be so big and old
Why the snow and sleet is so cold
Why the sun is so hot and the wind is so strong
And why the rainbow seems to be extremely long

I Wonder Why...
Birds always sing and chirp
Why cats meow and humans burp
Why leaves change colors in the spring and fall
I'll just ask God my many wonders, he can answer them all
