FOR the game of Croquet, Tommy Purr didn’t care

Till he met Kitty Mouser, so sweet and so fair.

Now he plays it with her almost every fine day –

There will soon be a wedding, the gossips all say !

MRS. GOAT must go shopping, and leave by themselves

Her dear little Kids, seven playful young elves.

She bids them be careful, and sharply look out

For a sly wicked Wolf, that is prowling about;

They must keep the door fastened, and not let him in,

Or quickly he’d eat them, bones, body, and skin !

Let us hope that the Kids will their mother obey,

And that she bargain-hunting too long will not stay.
