PILLOW HORSE.

I have a horse, a charger black so very fierce

of eye,

Who snorts and tosses back his head with

loud, whinnying cry.

My dobbin does not roam away, nor is he

ever fed,

That’s because my trusty steed is a pillow on

the bed!

A pillow horse is quite the bestest kind of

horse to own,

That is, of course, for little folks who don’t

like being thrown.

It doesn’t cost a penny piece to keep my horse

in corn,

Although I’m not allowed to take him out

upon the lawn.

My dobbin is a noble steed, with me upon his

back

We gallop off for many miles a-down a dream-

land track;

He has neither stall nor stable, is never,

never fed.

So that’s the bestest kind of horse, a pillow

on the bed!

EDNA ROUGHLEY.
