A Child's Rhyme

After yesterday's posting, I felt the need to post something more lighthearted...and childlike. :)




In the corners now I rout,
Poking every atom out.
At the ceiling now I dash:
Lurking spiders feel my lash.
Cobweb, fly, and spider grey,
Out you come! away! away!

---from "The Broom," by Laura E. Richards (1914)
