“Physical Law”


While perusing an old newspaper, specifically St. Cloud Times, May 10, 1946, this amusing short verse by Esther Baldwin York caught my attention:

Little boys and cookie jars
Gravitate together.
Separate them by a shelf
It’s a question whether
It will be a stool or chair
For the best ascent,
Or the jar hooked off the edge
“By an accident.”
Little boys and cookie jars
Magnetize each other.
You won’t find it in a book;
But just ask any mother!
