"Do you know the wee rhyme about the Wee Young Mouse, a bit sad me thinks."|
| THE YOUNG
In a crack near a
cupboard, with dainties provided,
A certain young mouse with her
So securely they lived on that
Any mouse in the land might have
envied their lot.
But one day this young
mouse, who was given to roam,
Having made an
excursion some way from her home,
On a sudden
return with such joy in her eyes
That her grey,
sedate parent expressed some surprise.
Mother!" said she, "the good folks of this
convinced, have not any ill-will to a mouse;
those tales can't be true which you always are
For they've been at the pains to
construct us a dwelling.
"The floor is of
wood and the walls are of wires,
Exactly the size
that one's comfort requires;
And I'm sure that
we should there have nothing to fear
If ten cats
with their kittens at once should
"And then they have made such nice
holes in the wall,
One could slip in and out
with no trouble at all;
But forcing one's way
through such crannies as these
one's poor ribs a most terrible squeeze.
