Wonder Poem by maria goodison


All under the covers, safe and sound
I started to wonder at it all.

All the things we say and do,
all the look's we give the world,
all the passing smile's just to say 'it's ok'.
I've tried my best to understand,
to stop that hammer from hitting the ground.

All cuddled up safe in a ball,
I thought like I have never before
and still finding my feet,
I'm still wondering at it all.
