"Out of the Mouths of Babes"

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 words faint.
                       'I'll give you a dollar, Mister,
                       If you can tell me where God ain't...?' 

Just had to. Have a great weekend. Blessings!!
