How can I prove anything ?

A little child of three or four
With a freckled face and curly locks
Looked up at me with a toothy grin
She seemed like a brook tripping on the rocks

Barely standing, she asked of me
"Are you sure the sky is blue ?"
"Ofcourse! What a question!" I said
I will just now prove it to you

"Just look up and see", and I saw at twilight hour
The sky turning golden, red and pink all at once
"Which of these is blue ?," she asked
I stood there, mute, feeling like a dunce

She stared at me, with a innocent look
"Tell me no ... Is it that hue ?"
I saw the world, mirrored in her eyes
"You know it all already, how can I prove anything to you ?"

  2. ok sorry if that sounded rather duh but it was rather vivid and i could see it all in "mah mind's eye" and that was for the l'il gal. nice one :)
