What is the sky?

The sky is above us—
There; it’s blue.

Can I touch it?

No, you can’t touch it.
It’s too far away.

If I go higher,
can I touch it?

Well, there are planes in the sky.
Folks are in them.

Do they touch it?

Yes—no. I don’t know.
They’re just in it.

How far down does it come?

I suppose it comes all
The way to the ground.

Then don’t I touch it?

Yes, I guess so. Maybe
It touches you.

Does it fill up the ant holes?

Yes, I guess so.

And all the rabbit holes?

Yes, I guess so.

If I dig a hole,
will the sky fill it?

Yes, I guess it fills
All the holes.
