Of nil the 111011 the world has seen
I Lince Time his rounds began,
JOiJ N D. BARRIER and SON. , T: -re's rno I pity every day
.li.ait.ors and Proprietor. Earth's first and foremost man;
. ! Just think oi' the tun he missed
By faiMnu: to enjoy
The dc'H- delimits of youthtinie,
For lie never was a boy.
He never stubbed his naked toe
Against a ro.Vi. or s!o.m;,
lie never with a pin-Iiook iisIuh;.
For minnows all ah me.
lie never sought the bumblebee,
Among the daisies coy,
Nor left its business end,
Because he never was a boy.
He never hookey played, nor tied
A bright and shinning pad
Down in the alley all alone,
To a trusting poodle's tail.
And when he home from swim
His pleasure to destroy
No slipper interfered
Because he never was a boy.
He might remember splendid
In Eden's bowers yet
He never acted Romeo
To a sixty-year Juliet,
He never seen a valentine
Intended to annoy
His good but maiden aunt,
Because he never was a boy.
He never cut a kite string, not,
Nor hid an Easter egg;
II j never spoiled his pantaloons
A playin' mumbley-peg.
He never from the attic stole
A coon hunt to enjoy.
Nor found the "old man" wait
ing. For he never was a boy.
I pity him, why should I not?
I even drop a tear;
He never knew how much he
Lie never will, I fear
And always when those dear old
My memories rmploy,
I pity him, Earth's only man
'Who never was boy.
