30 The Kitten's Garden of Verses A Kitten‘s Fancy The Kitten mews outside the Door, The Cat-bird in the Tree, The Sea-mew mews upon the Shore, The Catfish in the Sea. The Emu with his feathers queer Is mewing in the Zoo. Why is it that I never hear A Pussy-willow mew? 31 The Kitten's Garden of Verses In Darkest Africa At evening when the lamp is lit, The tired Human People sit And doze, or turn with solemn looks The speckled pages of their books. Then I, the Dangerous Kitten, prowl And in the Shadows softly growl, And roam about the farthest floor Where Kitten never trod before.
To Someone very Good and Just, Who has proved worthy of her trust, A Cat will sometimes condescend— The Dog is Everybody‘s friend. 35 The Kitten's Garden of Verses The Game Watching a ball on the end of a string, Watching it swing back and to, Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing Ever a Kitten can do. First it goes this way, then it goes that, Just like a bird on the wing. And all of a tremble I crouch on the mat Like a Lion, preparing to spring. 36 The Kitten's Garden of Verses And now with a terrible deafening mew, Like a Tiger I leap on my prey, And just when I think I have torn it in two It is up in the air and away.
The Human People pat his head And teach him to pretend he‘s dead, And beg, and fetch and carry too; Things that no well-bred Cat will do. 34 The Kitten's Garden of Verses At Human jokes, however stale, He jumps about and wags his tail, And Human People clap their hands And think he really understands. They say “Good Dog“ to him. To us They say “Poor Puss,“ and make no fuss. Why Dogs are “good“ and Cats are “poor“ I fail to understand, I‘m sure. To Someone very Good and Just, Who has proved worthy of her trust, A Cat will sometimes condescend— The Dog is Everybody‘s friend.
