From the book In the Middle of the Trees (Harper and Row, 1958) by Karla Kuskin.
Ms. Kuskin (1932-2009) is an award-winning author, illustrator and book reviewer, loved for her whimsical, child-like prose and drawings. She authored and illustrated dozens of books, including The Philharmonic Gets Dressed and A Space Story (which I wrote about here).
