Poem by James Whitcomb Riley


Extremes


A little boy once played so loud
That the Thunder, up in a thunder-cloud,
Said, Since I cant be heard, why, then
Ill never, never thunder again!

And a little girl once kept so still
That she heard a fly on the window-sill
Whisper and say to a ladybird, - 
Shes the stillest child I ever heard!
