Sidey’s weekend challenge, “I wonder,” reminded me of this poem which I learned at school. I decided to illustrate it with some pics of my own as well as a few from Google images. I’m particularly proud of the rainbow one, taken one evening when we visited New England in the Fall of 2001. The winter trees one was taken as we drove on our memorable journey from Jackson Hole to Yellowstone, a couple of years ago.
I Wonder ~ Jeannie Kirby (1922-91)
“I wonder why the grass is green,
And why the wind is never seen
Who taught the birds to build a nest,
And told the trees to take a rest?
And when the moon is not quite round,
Where can the missing bit be found?
Who lights the stars, when they blow out,
And makes the lightning flash about?
Who paints the rainbow in the sky,
And hangs the fluffy clouds so high?
Why is it now, do you suppose,
That Dad won’t tell me if he knows?
I also caught “Lizzy” earlier today, sitting on the patio and looking as though she was wondering where the insect screening had disappeared to. Hopefully the job will be finished by Tuesday, and there’ll be some new netting where her dinner can be caught.
Hope you’re all having a great weekend. Chat again soon.
Thanks, Madhu. 🙂
