This is stuck in my head right now

Lines Upon a Tranquil Brow

Have you ever while pondering the ways of the morn,
Thought to save just a bit, just a drop in the horn;
To pour in the ev'ning or late afternoon
Or during the night when we're shining the moon?
Have you ever cried out while counting the snow
Or watching the tomtit warble hello....
Break out the cigars, this life is for squirrels
We're off to the drugstore to whistle at girls?

Others spent their youth memorizing Shakespeare. I spent mine memorizing Pogo. What a warped childhood.
