[The following question storm was kindly shared with us by Happy Cow's good friend Simon Drew. When he is not busy standing in for the Prime Minister of Belgium, Simon can be found opining amongst the pines, over-egging the pudding, considering himself part of the family and running the online groups English Stuff and International Monthly Hatstand Day. If you can come up with a reason to do so, why not leave a comment at the bottom of this page?

Why do you ask me why I love you?
Why do the flowers bloom?
Why do the stars dance with the moon in the folding sky?
Why do does a baby laugh and cry?
Inside the honey wet dreams of trees
the bees dance out the songs
of the rivers and dust on the wind
the foot paths lead out to the desert
where all around the frogs are sleeping, swimming
moments caught between the fingers of a hand
reaching for the sun
Can you find one ounce of regret in that sunlight?
Why does the wind blow on summer nights?
Or the heart keep beating through the day?
Why do I ask you why?
