Classic and Contemporary Poetry
WITH A CHILD-BOOK, by JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY Poet's Biography
First Line: There is lore of more devices
Last Line: This old tailor and his mice is!
Alternate Author Name(s): Johnson Of Boone, Benj. F.
Subject(s): Books; Reading
THERE is LORE of more devices,
And ROMANCE that more entices
Higher minds and higher prices; --
But, for "Giggle-boy" or "Cry-sis"
(With some sniffless interstices)
Here's a little tale suffices --
Sweet as oranges in slices
Slobbed in slues o' cream and ices,
Tanged with tingling, spangling spices. --
Ho! there's no tale half so nice as
This Old Tailor and his Mice is!
