Does anyone know of a poem by James Whitcom Riley about a boy who uses his father's seat in the family outhouse, which proves to be too large for him?

I love little orphan annie poet you wrote so I just want to say I love your interest in this poem
I am looking for the date of writing/publishing for each poem and could not find it on the site. Am I overlooking something obvious?

Date of birth listed above is wrong. It's October 7th not the 9th.
I read your poems and it was good.
James I read your 'poem of the day' and I think it is brilliant! your sense of rythmn & rhyme is beautiful and your poetic license with spelling and alliteration is superb. It makes wish I could have been the fly on the wall in a meeting between you and the late Ogden Nash- Keep it up Cheers Tony Judson
