I wonder.... Have you ever wonder, the wonder of wonders?
(picture: courtesy of my cousin Dr Faisal)
I wonder why the grass is green,
And why the wind is never seen
Who taught the birds to build a nest,
And told the trees to take a rest?
And when the moon is not quite round,
Where can the missing bit be found?
Who lights the stars, when they blow out,
And makes the lightning flash about?
Who paints the rainbow in the sky,
And hangs the fluffy clouds so high?
Why is it now, do you suppose,
That Dad won’t tell me if he knows?
- Jeanne Kirby
*I remembered reading this poem when I was about nine. Unfortunately it was the first four lines that I memorized. But not now, when you can easily 'google' and there it is...the whole page!
Hope my friends here will like it as much as I did then, and do now....
Lots of love,
A note to myself:
La Tahzan...la tahzan...la tahzan...
Feeling 'not very nice' for days now, I'm telling myself not to be sad.
- So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers. (Ali Imran, 139)
(Jangan kamu lemah dan janganlah kamu bersedih hati padahal kamulah orang-orang yang paling tinggi [darjatnya] jika kamu orang yang beriman. Ameen.)
