HOW COME I WONDER



The sun awakes each early morn
Bright sky glows its colors adorn
Nothing but jeans tattered and torn
Miracle of life a child is born
	How come I wonder

Fly in formation at high noon
Birds band together sing a tune
Scent of lilac come early June
Summer breezes come none too soon
	How come I wonder

Sun sets without saying goodbye
Sweet aroma of apple pie
A comet flies across the sky
A full moon hangs still way up high
	How come I wonder

This flows beautifully Line, with perfect rhyme. The wonder of a child, innocence. Wonder of later years, appreciation. I hope it never ends.

I just love the line "How come I wonder" and tend to use it randomly at the silliest times. It makes me happy. LOL
