Dumbstruck by a poem from my 7-yr old niece

This is a poem by my 7-year old pre­co­cious niece that I wish to cher­ish for pos­ter­i­ty through this blog.

The Earth”

I saw the stars
Twin­kling above my head
And the sand
Blink­ing below my bed

The plants grow­ing around me
The boats sail­ing around the sea
The eyes sparkling in a face
The bikes rac­ing in a race

Oh, I won­der
I could be part of this beau­ti­ful nature!

I was flab­ber­gast­ed after encoun­ter­ing this from a 7-year old. At that age, I don’t think I could even grasp such con­cepts, for­get writ­ing about them.

Evo­lu­tion is not illu­so­ry, it is hap­pen­ing today, in front of all of us, if we only real­ize, under­stand and accept.

Update: After writ­ing this post describ­ing her as pre­co­cious, I lat­er saw what she had scrib­bled on our white­board:
