Where God Ain’t

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 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, 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”
