Children’s Poetry: Mr and Mrs Mouse

Do you think

Said Mr Mouse

That we should buy

A bigger house?

Well my dear

Said Mrs Mouse

The problem is

I like this house

With baby mice

I know it’s full

And there’s no space

Not much at all

But it is cosy

Nice and warm

And keeps us dry

When there’s a storm

And one day when

The babies grow

They’ll choose to move

Away, you know

And this house of

Our family

Will keep us with

Their memory

And when we’re old

We’ll think it’s nice

Remembering

Our baby mice

So now you see

Dear Mr Mouse

Why we should stay

In this dear house
