Happy Mama's Day

He was just a little boy on a week's first day,
He was wandering home from Sunday School and dawdling on the way,

He scuffed his shoes in 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 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 of God."

"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."
