The World Awry


Little Bo Peep
Has lost her words.
Miss Muffet has nothing to say.
The pie is all empty
Of singing black birds
And Boy Blue has lost his way.
The cow no longer
Looks at the moon
And the little dog’s eyes are red.
The dish is all cracked
And can’t find the spoon
And my little boy is dead.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
