"Blessings on thee, little man,/ Barefoot boy, with cheek of tan%/ With thy turned-up pantaloons,/ And thy merry whistled tunes;/ With thy red lip, redder still/ Kissed by strawberries on the hill;/ With the sunshine on thy face,/ Through thy torn brim's jaunty grace:/ From my heart I give thee joy--/ I was once a barefoot boy./ Prince thou art--the grown-up man/ Only is republican./ Let the million-dollared ride%--/ Barefoot trudging at his side,/ Thou hast more than he can buy,/ In the reach of ear and eye--/ Outward sunshine, inward joy;/ Blessings on thee, barefoot boy%" Whittier. [P. 8.]
