rolling stones

by
o. henry
author of "the four million," "the voice of the city," "the trimmed

lamp," "strictly business," "sixes and sevens," etc.
1919
[illustration: the last photograph of o. henry, taken by
w. m. vanderwayde (new york) in 1909]

o. henry, afrite-chef of all delight--
of all delectables conglomerate
that stay the starved brain and rejuvenate
the mental man! the aesthetic appetite--
so long enhungered that the "inards" fight
and growl gutwise--its pangs thou dost abate
and all so amiably alleviate,
joy pats his belly as a hobo might
who haply hath obtained a cherry pie
with no burnt crust at all, ner any seeds;
nothin' but crisp crust, and the thickness fit.
and squashin'-juicy, an' jes' mighty nigh
too dratted, drippin'-sweet for human needs,
but fer the sosh of milk that goes with it.

written in the character of "sherrard
plummer" by james whitcomb riley
