I have always wondered,
How trees become green
And how on the lemon,
Yellow can be seen

How the blueberry appears to be blue,
And how brown is the colour of dad’s shoe

Why granny’s hair is white,
And why my pink shirt is so tight!

Why is the sky blue?
Why is the olive black?
I don’t have a clue,
But I must not turn back…

I asked my dad and he replied,
“I don’t know”, but I still tried

I asked my mother and she said,
“It’s nature’s creation, now go to bed”

Now I know why that’s the colour of the cat
But how does nature do it? I still don’t know that!
