"BOOH!", naturally you know this must come from the wonderful pen of Eugene Field. xxx

SELIGOR'S CASTLE AND ANOTHER POEM FROM

DIDDILY DEE DOT'S CHOICE


Eugene Field (1850-1895) was an unusual poet in that he was one of the few poets who wrote only children's poetry. Rather unimaginatively, he was nicknamed, The Children's Poet.

"BOOH!"

By Eugene Field

On afternoons, when baby boy has had a splendid nap,
and sits, like any monarch on his throne, in nurse's lap,
in some such wise my handkerchief I hold before my face,
and cautiously and quietly I move about the place;
then, with a cry, I suddenly expose my face to view,
and you should hear him laugh and crow when I say "booh"!

Sometimes the rascal tries to make believe that he is scared,
and really, when I first began, he stared, and stared, and stared;
and then his under lip came out and farther out it came,
till mamma and the nurse agreed it was a "cruel shame" -
but now what does that same wee, toddling, lisping baby do
but laugh and kick his little heels when I say "booh!"

He laughs and kicks his little heels in rapturous glee, and then
in shrill, despotic treble bids me "do it all aden!"
And I - of course I do it; for, as his progenitor,
it is such pretty, pleasant play as this that I am for!
And it is, oh, such fun I and sure that we shall rue
the time when we are both too old to play the game "booh!"
