The Kitten at Play

See the kitten on the wall,

Sporting with the leaves that fall,

Withered leaves, one, two and three

Falling from the elder tree,

Through the calm and frosty air

Of the morning bright and fair.

See the kitten, how she starts,

Crouches, stretches, paws and darts;

With a tiger-leap half way

Now she meets her coming prey.

Lets it go as fast and then

Has it in her power again.

Now she works with three and four,

Like an Indian conjurer;

Quick as he in feats of art,

Gracefully she plays her part;

Yet were gazing thousands there;

What would little Tabby care?
