Toys (how everything started – I was 12 when I wrote this :) )

Teddies, little dolls and kittens

Either stuffed or made from knittings,

Pretty toys that come to bow

To the mighty tomcat Meow.

*

And at night they’re all awake

They’re alive and joy they take

In doing the chores at hand.

What they break, they quickly mend.

*

Hurried, busy little fellows,

It soon dawns over the meadows!

Be careful tiny friend!

A kid’s gotten out of bed!

*

When the clock strikes midnight next

The toys that are never vexed

Shall awake and play till dawn

And keep silent in the morn’.
