swishing through the rye grass
Tail balancing at half-mast.
lying in the cherry tree.
Look out, little furry folk!
Eats but one in every ten ---
...And the mouse police never sleeps ---
Window-box town crier;
With claws that rake a furrow red ---
From warm milk on a lazy day
...No, the mouse police never sleeps ---
Windy roof-top weathercock.
