Poetry of Kansas

The Yeller Little Feller

There was a little feller
    With freckles on his cheek;
His countenance was yeller,
    And he looked mighty meek.
Once he fell down cellar
    And stubbed a big toe,
And loudly did he beller
    To express his deep woe.
Till an apple that was meller
    He saw upon the floor;
And then he felt weller
    And didn't cry no more.
