Why are the birdies so sad to-day?
S' : T hey are crying and '.b' I;1 you see ;
S. -P-' One of their friends has been killed by the cat,
And the rest are as sad as can be.
He ventured last night to pick up some crumbs
That were scattered just outside a door;
But pussie sprang out and gobbled him up;
So he'll never come back any more.
