By Carl E. Bjork
There was in The Big City a
"place where beans and coffee were
served to The Wayfaring Man.
And in this beanery worketh Til
lie who was a hearer of the word
and that only.
For one day I hie into the place,
and did seat myself upon one of
The Turning Stools. And Tillie
serveth me with Steaming Hot
Java, which doeth my inner lining
And as 1 leaneth upon The
Counter, Tillie with the frillie hair
speaketh thus, I hear that thou
art a writer for The Zebulon Rec
od for I have noted thy scribblings
And she continued with such
sayings, There are only two things
that I do hold against The Rec
ord. One is that thou art such a
poor writer and the other is that
Ferd Davis prints more Records on
green than on yellow paper, and
green is my favorite color.
And she said Other Things but
I perceive that she joketh with me,
so I smileth back at Tillie who
toileth in The Place of Food Od
Now Tillie leaneth a wee bit
closer to me, and she did drop her
tone of voice, and confidentially
did confide in me, I do some writ
ing too, she saith, but I am a poet.
Indeed, I did reply, many a
pearl is found in Odd Looking
Oysters, Show me what thou dost
And she did hurry to The Cash
Register, and out of the drawer
did bring forth A Sheet of Paper
which she did hand to me.
Now Tillie's poem was on the
subject of love,and as I read I
did glance toward This Waitress,
and she is watching me like a
Dime Store Manager watcheth his
And I did read thus:
Love comes to rocks,
I do declare,
It makes the dewdrops
In the Air.
Love comes to acorns
In the fall,
Leaves and bushes,
It is for all.
Love comes to sand
Hi ho, hi ho,
It is in the rain
And little snow.
So I did refrain from reading
the Other Verses, and giveth Til
lie her poem, and cleareth my
throat for to speak.
But Tillie spoke first, and said,
Why not publish My Poem in Your

Scribblings? I will give it to thee
for next week’s issue,
i And I refraineth her, saying,
s Tillie, it is not too good. It is good
. for some to read, but not for
■ many. Thou should try to write
[ another and perchance it will
please All the readers of the Rec
Now Tillie looketh hurt for a
s moment, then she appeareth
; amazed for a second, and at last
; she is really mad, and she taketh
her Love Poem and leaveth me
alone by The Beanery Counter
while ahe stareth with wrath upon
me from The Far Corner of The
And this continueth for many
days, and Tillie no longer serves
me in That Place when I enter, by
reason of my opinion of her ideas
So I deviseth a scheme all by
myself one day.
And the next time I enter for
coffee and beans, I did hand The
Cold-faced Poet an tiny note upon
which was written:
This Little Poem Isn’t Much,
And Looketh downright silly,
But I do wish from day to day,
That love will come to Tiilie.
And after she readeth it, she
smileth some, and then getteth my
order. And no longer does she
scowl at me when I come therein,
for we are great friends once
more, and Tillie is a doer of her
poems and not a writer only.
See that thou art likewise, O
