That Paper Twang

I once heard a flute from far away

Was it the doorbell or the voice of Aunt Maye?

I tried to follow the flute far away 

And found the carriage-drivers whistling with green leaves

I once knew that all they did was drive carriages

But I didn't know that they feasted on cabbages

I tried to follow the flute again the next day

And caught Aunt Maye brushing her teeth in the garden

I was disappointed that day, so I took a carriage

I even ate some cabbages

And rode into town

In the town square, I saw a lady

A lady with a white dressing gown

I said, "Wow."

I did not know where they sold dressing gowns.

I tried to listen for a fluteing sound

But all I got was a bag of five to fifteen pounds.

From Aunt Maye's brother, Uncle Brown
