A Curious Mind

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. Original poem written for: The contest “Short Poem Contest” ¤¤ 8th Place ¤¤ Composed by: Samual Ronthorpe.
