What do you know? @DrArlettePoland

You only know what you know.

Do you claim to know more?


What do you know, oh moonbeam?

What I know is the moon

I know the moon so well I can imitate

Its existence in light

I do know what I know

Exclaimed the moonbeam


I know what I know

Flatly stated

The dew drop on the flower – so sure of what it knows

I know what I know

I know how to balance here

I know how to accumulate

And rest right here

On this orange and yellow flower

And then I know how to

Join the warmth in the air

After a bit of what you call time

Then I know how to disappear


I know how to gather here

On this scented petal of yellow and orange

And balance just so

Like on a teeter totter moving without falling

Precarious as it might look

I know what I know!


I know what I know

Declared the frog

When I speak frog-talk - I send signals to other frogs

Who also speak frog-talk

When I jump I move across lilly pads and rocks

So swiftly that all you see is the water trail behind me


I know how to croak in frog-talk

I know how to jump large distances

I know what I know


What do I know?

I know that moonbeams help to light my path

I know that dew drops help to feed my flowers

I know that frogs keep my garden safe from bugs


What do I know?

I know you are kind

Just as moonbeams light my path

So your kindness lights yours


I know you are kind

Just as dew drops feed flowers

Your kindness feeds the beauty of you


I know you are kind

Just as the frogs keep the garden healthy

So your kindness is the core of your health


What do I know

I know you are kind

Do you know it?
