Rolling Stones



With Illustrations and Photographs.

O. Henry, Afrite-Chef of all delight—Of all delectables conglomerate, That stay the starved brain and rejuvenate, The Mental Man! The æsthetic 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
