A Poem for Tuesday

From Poems Children Enjoy in honor of President’s Day yesterday.

You Cannot Tell
Daisy Jenney Clay

When Lincoln and George Washington
Were little boys like me,
They never thought when they grew up
That they would ever be

The President; and boys and girls
Over books would pore
That told the way each worked and played
So many years before.

Perhaps I should be careful,
And live my boyhood well,
For sometime they might read of me
You really cannot tell!
