Mouse in the house


An inquisitive mouse, a pleasant mouse,
an almost-too-furry mouse, in a blurry house,
where the light was low and clothes were on the floor,
at the door became a baby instead, and begged
not to be turned away, and I, of course,
in great remorse, had no recourse
but to bring him in again,
and that, my friend,
was the dream
I had.

My dear friend, your wonderful dream took me right back to my childhood and a Tom and Jerry cartoon called "A Mouse in the House" made in 1947! What a delightful memory your sweet dream brought back to me...thank you :))

Thanks, Jan! Truly, “they don’t make them like that anymore.”
