Where God Is
He was just a little boy,
on a week's first day.
He was wandering home from Sunday School,
and dawdling along 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 over 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 wiggley worm,
replying, "I've learned a lot of God."
"M'm very fine way," the neighbor said,
"for a boy to spend his time."
"If you'll tell me where God is,
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!
