A Curious Mind


Is there really gold at the end of a rainbow?
This is one of the things I’d like to know,
If you get too close to a nuclear plant,
Would you glow?

If I look into the sun,
Just before the eclipse has begun,
Will I necessarily go blind?
Or is that just superstition?

Why doesn’t a ducks quack echo?
Why don’t I have the patience to learn piano?
This is what a curious mind asks,
This is what a curious mind wants to know.

Having a curious mind,
Is the best way to be designed,
Every new thing is an adventure,
So many wonders to find.
