Kittens - The Cross Kitten
Tiny and Tittens were two little kittens,
As soft and white as the snow,
Who went to play, on a bright summer day,
Where ripe red cherries do grow.
The play was begun in mirth and in fun,
But Tittens soon tired of that;
The cross young rover knocked Tiny over,
And snarled like a tiger-cat!
How naughty was this, with a growl and a hiss
To spoil so happy a play!
With kittens or boys, 'tis temper destroys,
And takes all pleasure away.
