As clouds go sailing by
I wonder WHY
They’re up so high
Is it just to cool the sun?
Or just to bring us rain?
Who knows the reason WHY
Can anyone explain the reason WHY
The sun stays hidden when it rains?
WHY does the sky turn grey?
WHY does a rose smell so sweet?
Who chose the colours that they keep?
Is the gardener to blame?
WHY is the fountain so alluring?
WHY is the water’s song so stirring?
Or is it just the sound of peace?
WHY are you drawn to wishing wells?
What makes you throw your penny in?
Do dreams and wishes really come true?
Or is it just because
There is no reason WHY …
