  1. Grown Up
    by Edgar A. Guest

    Last year he wanted building blocks,
    And picture books and toys,
    A saddle horse that gayly rocks,
    And games for little boys.
    But now he's big and all that stuff
    His whim no longer suits;
    He tells us that he's old enough
    To ask for rubber boots . . . .
