Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie

Mice
by Rose Fyleman

  I think mice are nice. 
Their tails are long
Their faces small,
They haven't any
Chins at all.



Their ears are pink,
Their teeth are white,
They run about
The house at night.
They nibble things
They shouldn't touch
And no one seems
To like them much.
But I think mice
Are nice  

.................


Post title is the first line from the poem
