SIMPLE THINGS

Have you ever thought it funny?

If upon your way

You stop the old clock in the hall

To ask the time of day

 

And have you ever wondered?

When the clouds up in the sky

Bump into each other

If that is why they cry.

 

And have you ever laughed?

When someone says in talk

‘It is such a lovely day,

Let us take a walk.’

 

For how on earth would you take it?

Would you carry it in your hands?

Perhaps we’d better leave it

Until we understand.

 

But wait, is it so really hard?

To understand these things

Come, on a journey to explain

We fly on simple wings.
