 He was just a little boy,


                                On a week's first day.
                                Wandering home from Bible school,
                                And dawdling on the way.

                                He scuffed his shoes into the grass;
                                He even found a caterpillar.
                                He found a fluffy milkweed pod,
                                And blew out all the 'filler.'

                                A bird's nest in a tree overhead,
                                So wisely placed up so high..
                                Was just another wonder,
                                That caught his eager eye.

                                A neighbor watched his zig zag course,
                                And hailed him from the lawn;
                                Asked him where he'd been that day
                                And what was going on.

                                'I've been to Bible School
                                He said and turned a piece of sod.
                                He picked up a wiggly worm replying,
                                'I've learned a lot about God.'

                                'M'm very fine way,' the neighbor said,
                                'for a boy to spend his time.'
                                'If you'll tell me where God is,
                                I'll give you a brand new dime.'

                                Quick as a flash the answer came!
                                Nor were his accents faint.
                                'I'll give you a dollar, Mister,
                                If you can tell me where God ain't.


                                Have a great week!
