JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY ..
He has twanged with gentle fingers
On the heartstrings of the land.
He's been cause for tears and laugh
ter Through his clever pen and hand.

With a funny run of rhyme.
He has reached the reading grown-1
With "An Old Sweetheart of Mine."
And his "Out to Old Aunt Mary's"

True to 01' Dame Nature's call.

And respect him, just because
He was MAN as well as poet.
He was human, Riley was.
