Yawcob Strauss and Other Poems/Roller-Skating
IN FOUR ACTS.
- "Ho, ho!" said careless Willie Gates;
- "Who couldn't learn on roller-skates?"
- "Ah, ha!" said he, as on the floor
- He struck out boldly for the door.
- "So, so!" observed the roller-skates,
- "We'll interview young William Gates."
- "Oh! Oo-o-o!" said Willie, meek and humble,
- "I thought 'twas easy ; now I tumble."'"
