ON HIS SIXTH BIRTHDAY – GOING TO SCHOOL.
From the story “The Whirling Globe.”
Prattles For Our Boys and Girls.
Hurst & Co.: New York. 1912.
I had a little pony,
His name was Dapple-gray,
I lent him to a lady,
To ride a mile away;
She whipped him, she slashed him,
She rode him through the mire;
I would not lend my pony now
For all the lady’s hire.
