The Crumb

The Little Mouse–Hiding in the house–

as hungry as he could be–

watched the young lady, eating her toast, laughing with such glee–

when all of a sudden a piece of  that toast landed on her knee, Yippee

 thought the Little Mouse while hiding in the young lady’s house–there is something here for me–

The speedy Little Mouse ran through the house,

capturing the crumb, on his little thumb,

and into the night ran he–

As he looked back at the young lady, still eating, and laughing with glee!
