Ada Twist, Scientist

The Investigation

Said not a word till the day she turned three.
Then she said “Why?” and also “How come?”
“What are things made of?” and/or “Where are they from?”

Ada studied the places throughout her homeland
Or examined the nature of things near at hand
Sometimes she learned one thing; sometimes she learned two.
Sometimes she learned nothing: well, what can you do?

Initially Ada - just three at the time -
She looked at, in turn, e'ry essence or place
And found something new - our dear Ada’s an ace!
