and on the weeks first day.
Was wandering home from Sunday School,
and dawdling all the way.
He scuffed his shoes into the grass,
he found a caterpillar.
He found a fluffy milk weed 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 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 and said,
"I've learned a lot about God."
"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!"
