This was my favorite store / poem when I was a little girl. I memorized it by heart. Now that I have grandkids of my own. I would love To teach it to them. Where cane I find it. Mom had a set of encyclopedias that had it in it?

James Whitcomb Riley has been my favorite poet since I was a child of two when my older sister would read to me from our book of children's poems. There were several poets represented in the book, but Mr. Riley's are the poems that touched my heart the most and have remained there for more than 50 years. They are poems that can touch the hearts are everyone, no matter their gender, age, or intelect. They are profoundly deep and rich in everything that honestly matters and yet they are expressed without the complexity of hidden messages found in other poetry.
