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.
