Where Is God?

He was just a little boy, on a week's first day.
He was wandering home from Sunday School, and dawdling on the way.

He scuffed his shoes into the grass; he found a caterpillar.
He found a fluffy milkweed pod, and blew out all the filler.

A bird's nest in a tree over head, so wisely placed on high,
was just another wonder that caught his eager eye.

A neighbor watched his zig zag course, and hailed him from the lawn;
Asked him where he'd been that day and what was going on.

"I've been to Bible School," he said, and turned a piece of sod.
He picked up a wiggley worm replying, "I've learned a lot of God."

"M'm, very fine way," the neighbor said, "for a boy to spend his time.
If you'll tell me where God is, I'll give you a brand new dime."

Quick as a flash the answer came, nor were his accents faint.
"I'll give you a dollar, Mister, if you can tell me where God ain't."
