Cat's Paw

Cat's Paw

A Poem by Debbie Barry

A scrap of new poetry for children.


The little mouse peeped out of his hole,

Peeped out of his hole to see

Whether the cats were on patrol,

Whether ’twas safe for he.


The little mouse, he came from his hole,

He darted out so bold;

A swat of the paw he never saw,

And so his story was told.
