He was just a little lad, and on the 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 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."

"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!"
