I once saw a mouse
Upon a doll’s house Sniffing and twitching his nose I asked how he was And he looked right across And said, not too bad I suppose
I asked, Are you waiting
For someone or thing He sighed, no I’m lost And it’s a fine ding-a-ling
I asked, can I help or show you the way
Where were you headed or going today He said I don’t know for I’m really quite small I thought I’d remember but I just can’t recall
He started to sniffle
Then started to cry I said now don’t get upset I’m not, I’ve something in my eye!
I gave him a hankie
See if this helps He wiped his face Blew his nose and yelped!
I asked, what’s wrong now
Have you hurt your nose? No he replied I’ve just stubbed my toes
He shuddered and trembled
And gave a great sneeze He cried I’ve remembered I was going for some cheese
He thanked me and said
I must be on my way The shop will soon close It’s Wednesday; half day
He scuttled away
With his tail close behind I thought, well how strange It’ll play on my mind
That hankie was a gift
From my great uncle Bob That rascal just took it Without even a nod

There once was a boy from this place, Where nature gleams with glorious grace. Though all seemed right And the sun always bright, He dreamed of someday travelling through space. In school, The only thing he ever did do was
But it’s not my fault Cried the mouse in dismay I though I knew where I was But appear to have lost my way Sat at the foot of my bed With his hands under his head He tried through
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways, His trials and tribulations shall rule his nights and days. Like the sea driven by the winds and tossed, His very own soul will be his final cost. He wants
Somewhere in between the waking and the dream, I can feel you close to me. Just before times hands reshape the desert sands, I can feel you reach for me. In the blink of tear stained eyes, watching weary to
