THE THREE LITTLE KITTENS.


H ESE kittens so gay
Were invited one day
To feast by a running
stream,
Where they had as much meat
As they wanted to eat,
And plenty of nice ice-cream;
And each went to sleep
Curled up in a heap
And had a most lovely dream.
Purr, purr, purr, purr,
Purr, purr, purr, purr.

NE night in the Fall
They went to a ball,
And danced to a lively
tune,
\Vith a leap and a bound
And a merry-go-round,
And the sound of a big bassoon;
And three -handsome beaus
Seized the chance to propose,
Coming home by the light of the moon,
Miew, miew, miew, miew,
Miew, miew, miew, miew.

mp H ESE kittens, 'twas said,
Were soon to be wed;
The cards had been out
some days;
And cat-birds, no doubt,
Spread the news about
As they flew o'er the great highways;
And cats, one and all,
The great and the small,
Were loud in the kittens' praise.
Miew, miew, miew, miiew,
Miew, miew, miew, miew.


T last came the day,
LAnd in splendid array
The guests soon began to
arrive,
SThe aunts and the cousins
By sixes and dozens,
All buzzing like bees in a hive
And among them Sir Rouser,
A famous old mouser,
And the handsomest Maltese alive.
Purr, purr, purr, purr,
Purr, purr, purr, purr.

FTER the marriage
Each groom called his carriage,.
And, oh, they rode off in
fine style
The brides beaming brightly,
And bowing politely,
To friends every once in a while,
Who kept up a squalling
And great caterwauling
That might have been heard for a mile.
Miew, miew, miew, miew,
Miew, miew, miew, miew.

HIE three pretty brides,
And their husbands besides,
S Took rooms in a very
nice flat;
Not a rat or a mouse
Was e'er seen in the house,
Nor any one heard to cry Scat!
So they lived and looked pleased-
They were petted not teased-
Now what do you think of that?
Purr, purr, purr, purr,
Purr, purr, purr, purr.
