Why Why

In the poem is ‘Why’. Children are shown as curious by nature. They are curious as everything is so new for them. They are always asking questions about everything around them. They ask the most basic questions to which elders might not even have the answers.

The boy asks the reason for the floating of the wood, the sinking of lead and marbles, shining of the stars, blowing of the wind or the reasons as to why we eat or drink. The boy wants to know the reasons for the sinking of the sun and the weather of the flowers. The boy wants to know why fish have gills. He was even curious to know how seed got into the apple’s core and how the marrow got into the born. Some of the questions he asked weren’t too hard to explain but some of them were really hard to explain.
