THE OREGON STATESMAN, SALEM, OREGON
SUNDAY MORNING," MARCH 1, 1925
A madcap runs along the street ,
On flying, eager, -noisy feet;
A boy whose whistle, loud and shrill, j
Goes echoing from hill to hill. i
To hail against the windowpane, i
The screaming wind, the beating rain j
Have called to him, "Come out, Come out! !
'Come out and play!" They run, they &hout,
He scampers here, he scampers there, i
The raindrops sparkle in his hair. j
He's splashed with mud, he's cold, he's wet,
His teeth are chattering, and yet ' i
Above the wind, his laughter rings;
What jolly little notes he sings !
Hurrah for snow that melts and runs "j
And glitters like a hundred suns! .. j
A madcap runs along the street '
I hear the clatter of his feet !
