Oh, dear Alpheus is active,
He’s rolling all around!
He’s on his back, now stomach—-Lo!
This baby boy knows how to go!
He swings his legs,
His arms swing, too!
Sweet Alpheus knows what to do!
And now he kicks a happy tune,
Like blast-off to the happy moon!
One day with Musk he’ll go to Mars
And play about with all the stars!
But now, just now, he’s set to burst
Into a playpen—that comes first!
Adventurere is Alpheus, and may he rove around
Till everything he’s looking for
Is in his grip so sound!
