THE WORLD IS SO SMALL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The world's a very little place
Last Line: To suit me so.
Subject(s): Babies; Earth; Infants; World


The world's a very little place,
And part of it is walls and floors,
And part's a pleasant sunny place
They call "outdoors."

They sometimes wheel me up the street
When all the world goes out to walk,
And everybody that I meet
Talks baby-talk.

The sun behaves in just the way
To most oblige a little tot;
It's daylight till I'm through my play,
And then it's not!

The raindrops never seem to fall
In any place where I may go
The world must truly be quite small
To suit me so.
