I pondered and I wondered...
I lay down in a field of green
And stared up at the sky
It was a bright cerulean blue
With white clouds floating by

Cerulean is a funny word
I pondered as I stared
It may not be the proper one
To describe the color there

Yes, baby blue may be the phrase
That I was looking for

By then my clothes were soaking wet
And I was stiff and sore
As much as I would like to stay

The rangers came to throw me out
They pushed me out the gate

I wondered if the gate is wood
Or metal of some kind
Aluminum or maybe steel?
Thoughts tumbled in my mind

That medicine that I was on
Had really hit my head
I stumbled and I staggered home
Where I fell into bed

My thoughts were swirling all around
As I began to sleep
But then I wondered to myself
Why am I counting sheep?

I pondered and I wondered…
