Where Is God?

He was just a little lad,
and on the week's first day
Wandering home from Sunday School
and dawdling all the way

He scuffed his shoes into the grass
he found caterpillar
Found a fluffy milk weed pod
and blew out all the filler

A bird's nest in a tree o'er head
so wisely placed on high
Was just another wonder
that caught his eager eye

A neighbor watched his zigzag
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
as he turned a piece of sod
Picked up a wiggly worm and said
'I've learned a lot about God'

'A 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 shiny dime'

Quick as a flash his answer came
Nor were his accents faint
'I'll give you a dollar mister,
if you'll tell me where He ain't!
