I wonder

By Vivienne, age 6

I wonder why I can wiggle my hands but I cannot fly,

I wonder why the sky is blue to my eye.

I wonder how flowers get their colour, when they bloom together in the Summer.

I wonder how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly,

And why some people are confident but some are shy.

I wonder why trees are covered in bark

And why owls ‘twit twoo’ in the dark.

I wonder what makes bones so strong and why my legs do the splits all wrong!

I hope one day I will know

So that I can put on a BIG science show!
