Why is it that I never hear A Pussy-willow mew? 31 The Kitten's Garden of Verses In Darkest Africa At evening when the lamp is lit, The tired Human People sit And doze, or turn with solemn looks The speckled pages of their books. Then I, the Dangerous Kitten, prowl And in the Shadows softly growl, And roam about the farthest floor Where Kitten never trod before. And, crouching in the jungle damp, I watch the Human Hunter‘s camp, Ready to spring with fearful roar 32 The Kitten's Garden of Verses As soon as I shall hear them snore.

36 The Kitten's Garden of Verses And now with a terrible deafening mew, Like a Tiger I leap on my prey, And just when I think I have torn it in two It is up in the air and away.

To Someone very Good and Just, Who has proved worthy of her trust, A Cat will sometimes condescend— The Dog is Everybody‘s friend. 35 The Kitten's Garden of Verses The Game Watching a ball on the end of a string, Watching it swing back and to, Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing Ever a Kitten can do.
