(03) Once It So Happened - Poem by Lubna S. Khan

Once it so happened that
I sat pondering in wonder,
Thinking that way, asking myself,
'Will I ever reach that yonder? '

Once it so happened that
I sat pondering in wonder,
Peering at the tireless bee,
Busy collecting necter.

But once it so happened
That I sat but not in wonder,
Rather a world, a wonderful world,
That had neither horizon nor border.

I could see the birds flying high,
I could see the clouds gathering by,
I could feel the breeze with its quenched sigh;
And that was the moment I did agnize - 'I too can reach the sky! '

(written while in the eight grade)
