There are many, many things

That I would like to know.

There is so very much to learn,

And growing is so slow!

Why are a mountain’s peaks so high?

Where do the clouds all go?

Why do some of them bring rain,

While others bring us snow?

Why can’t I understand the “words”

My puppy tries to say,

Yet have no trouble knowing

When he’s asking me to play?

For now I do not understand

Why certain things should be.

It doesn’t matter—I am glad

God shares them all with me.
