Tommy Purr's Hamper Poem
|At the school today there was quite a stir.
A hamper had come for young Tommy Purr.
There were nuts and apples all rosy red,
Oranges nearly as big as a head;
With almonds and raisins, and sugar and spice,
A pie that was filled with the most tender mice,
And cakes all covered with candied peels,
And a mouse to play with that ran on wheels.
From far and near the kittens did scamper,
And shouted hurrah for Tommy Purr’s hamper.
