Little mouse

Did you hear me, see me

Squeak squeak scratch scratch

Scuffling and shuffling

Sifting and shifting

Under floors behind walls


In and out of bins

Following scents

Up down side to side

Sharing abodes

Paying no rent's


Tap tap scrabble

Listening to human babble

In the garden, the shed

Maybe even under the bed


From corners I see

In grates I hide

Under garages I abide

Dark and dry is were I lie


You hate me yet feed me

A scared of me yet kill me

Do not want me near yet invite me in

Your a thousand times my size yet run from me

I'm the humble mouse


I'll share your house, your food

Stay out of your way

You won't really know I'm there

Let me live, show you care.

I Care About You

Mouse in my walls

nibbling on the wires

leaving little reminders

on the floor near

the holes you gnaw



How you eat the cheese

without disturging

the trap. How you run

across my guests feet

at dinner in search

of crumbs.


Oh, little mouse one day

you will grow too big

and venture outside, but

beware. Six big Tabby's

roam my hood and they

are furry and adept



Stella L. Crews





Loved this one - little mouse, cool write - :S

Great response in fact better

Great response in fact better than my post I think.

The darkness outside is not so frightening as the one inside. Behind knowing smiles and crocodile tears we hide our fears.


Being angry at someone is to give them power over you, but to forgive is to take away that power.
