    A Ballad Of Nursery Rhyme

    Strawberries that in gardens grow
    Are plump and juicy fine,
    But sweeter far as wise men know
    Spring from the woodland vine.

    No need for bowl or silver spoon,
    Sugar or spice or cream,
    Has the wild berry plucked in June
    Beside the trickling stream.

    One such to melt at the tongue's root,
    Confounding taste with scent,
    Beats a full peck of garden fruit:
    Which points my argument.

    May sudden justice overtake
    And snap the froward pen,
    That old and palsied poets shake
    Against the minds of men;

    Blasphemers trusting to hold caught
    In far-flung webs of ink
    The utmost ends of human thought,
    Till nothing's left to think.

    But may the gift of heavenly peace
    And glory for all time
    Keep the boy Tom who tending geese
    First made the nursery rhyme.

    By the brookside one August day,
    Using the sun for clock,
    Tom whiled the languid hours away
    Beside his scattering flock,

    Carving with a sharp pointed stone
    On a broad slab of slate
    The famous lives of Jumping Joan,
    Dan Fox and Greedy Kate;

    Rhyming of wolves and bears and birds,
    Spain, Scotland, Babylon,
    That sister Kate might learn the words
    To tell to Toddling John.

    But Kate, who could not stay content
    To learn her lesson pat,
    New beauty to the rough lines lent
    By changing this or that;

    And she herself set fresh things down
    In corners of her slate,
    Of lambs and lanes and London Town.
    God's blessing fall on Kate!

    The baby loved the simple sound,
    With jolly glee he shook,
    And soon the lines grew smooth and round
    Like pebbles in Tom's brook,

    From mouth to mouth told and retold
    By children sprawled at ease
    Before the fire in winter's cold,
    In June beneath tall trees;

    Till though long lost are stone and slate,
    Though the brook no more runs,
    And dead long time are Tom, John, Kate,
    Their sons and their sons' sons;

    Yet, as when Time with stealthy tread
    Lays the rich garden waste,
    The woodland berry ripe and red
    Fails not in scent or taste,

    So these same rhymes shall still be told
    To children yet unborn,
    While false philosophy growing old
    Fades and is killed by scorn. read more »
