There once lived a mouse named Tess,
Who was always making a mess.
She left crumbs high and low,
Yet wherever she’d go,
For the mess she’d never confess.

There once lived a pussy named Pete,
Who was always wanting to eat.
He would hunt high and low,
And wherever he’d go,
He searched for the tastiest treat.

The mouse lay asleep in sweet dream,
Pete’s eyes were both glinting with gleam.
The cat crept to her side,
With his mouth opened wide,
~ Of the crop, poor Tess was the cream!

Poetry is beauty in words.

LOL! I like this. I kind of feel sorry for that mouse. But, I'm sure glad he wasn't in my house.

That poor sweet, unsuspecting Tess. She met with a cruel fate.

Being the cream of the crop certainly can have its drawbacks!  Scared To Death 2

Good Morning Linda,
I love the poem.
Hope you don't mind if I print it to put into
my Survivor Cat's baby book.

Its now off for the day.
Have a great day,weekend.

man will not himself find peace."

What a surprise to see Tess & Pete back up on the world stage! lol

Sorry I didn't reply sooner, but I hadn't popped into Mice at Play, for ages!

I'd be honoured to have this poem added to your cat Survivor's baby book! How sweet!
