A little red ball rolled next to me,
I wonder where it’s going?
It came from somewhere, I don’t know,
And seems as if it’s glowing!
I reached my hand to pick it up,
And then it seemed to move!
I took a fright and backed away,
The ball did not approve!
It bounced up thrice and turned around,
Then rolled towards me fast!
I tried to scream out in my fear,
But then the ball was past!
I shook my head the fear was gone,
But now I start to wonder?
Is there someone in control?
Or was it just a blunder?
It seemed intent as it rolled away,
As if it had a mission.
And there is me in hot pursuit
To know is my ambition.
Was it magic that sent that ball?
To make my spirits soar?
Laughter bursts between my lips,
I know I’m wanting more!
I look around with some dismay,
It seems the ball has gone.
But it left me feeling happy,
And joy to which I’m drawn.
I learned a lesson here this day,
Of marvels that abound.
All we have to do is look.
And wonders will be found
