A Couple of Cats

I'm Only A Cat

by Eva, age 10

I'm only a cat,
and I stay in my place...
Up there on your chair,
on your bed or your face!

I'm only a cat,
and I don't finick much...
I'm happy with cream
and anchovies and such!

by Lizzy, age 6

I'm only a cat,
and we'll get along fine...
As long as you know
I'm not yours... you're all mine!

Runa's elephant

by Runa, age 5

Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant—

No! no! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone—
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I've got it right.)

Howe'er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;

The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee—
(I fear I'd better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)
