A Long-Felt Want

by Carolyn Wells

One day wee Willie and his dog
   Sprawled on the nursery floor.
He had a florist's catalogue,
   And turned the pages o'er,

Till all at once he gave a spring,
   "Hurrah!" he cried with joy;
"Mamma, here's just the very thing
   To give your little boy!

"For when we fellows go to school,
   We lose our things, you know;
And in that little vestibule
   They do get mixed up so.

"And as you often say you can't
   Take care of 'em for me,
Why don't you buy a rubber plant,
   And an umbrella tree?"
