'I Wonder' - Overview

Jeannie Kirby's 'I Wonder' consists of six couplets. This poem deals with the speaker's curiosity about the world around him/her. The speaker wonders about:

  • the colour of grass and the 'invisibility' of the wind.
  • the 'person' who trained the birds to create a nest and 'told the trees to take a rest'
  • the varying shape of the moon and the place where the missing piece of the moon can be found (when the moon that is sighted is not a full moon)
  • the illumination of the stars and lightning
  • the 'person' who painted the rainbow and placed the clouds at a high altitude
  • the reason the speaker's dad is withholding the answers to life's mysteries
