He was just a little lad,

and on the week's last day.

He was wandering home,

and dawdling on the way.

He scuffed his shoes into the grass;

he found a caterpillar;

He found a fluffy milkweed pod,

and blew out all the "filler."

A bird's nest in a tree o'er head

so wisely placed on high,

Was just another wonder

that caught his eager eye.

A neighbor watched his zigzag 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 and said,

"I've learned a lot of God."

"M'm a 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 his answer came!

Nor were his accents faint.

"I'll give you a dollar, Mister,

if you'll tell me where God ain't!"
