My Boy
By James Whitcomb Riley
 
YOU smile and you smoke your cigar, my boy;
  You walk with a languid swing;
You tinkle and tune your guitar, my boy,
  And lift up your voice and sing;
The midnight moon is a friend of yours,        5
  And a serenade your joy—
And it’s only an age like mine that cures
  A trouble like yours, my boy!
