THE LIGHTENING EXPRESS.

“Toot, toot!” cried Willy, “all aboard,

First thing you know, if you don’t mind,

You’ll all be left away behind;

So will you be so very kind

And get aboard this minute.”

The passengers, there were but two:

His blue-eyed sister Molly,

With Papa’s monster carpet bag

Which she could scarcely move or drag,

And something rip and rent and rag

Which she addressed as “Dolly.”

And off they go in merry mood,

And lips with laughter parted,

Across the valley of pretend

To make believe their journey’s end

Where all the trains which thither tend

Arrive before they’ve started.
