A Tiny Little Field Mouse

There in the doorway of the great big house,
Sat a very tiny field mouse,
Stroking his paw across the whiskers,
As the lady looked at the pictures.
Then she turned and jaw did drop,
The plate hit the carpet and the woman did run,
The mouse did eye the currant bun,
But he ran at the sound of the plate on the floor,
Silence really was no more.
The woman came back with another woman as well,
They both had rolled up magazines in hand,
Into the middle of the room did stand,
Making noise and shouting shoo shoo with the voice,
But mousey was in the ball of wool all snug,
Eating what was left of the cheese from last night,
He needed to eat after such a big fright.
After many hours the light it did go,
The woman sat on a chair in the room,
Watching the thing in the corner as it did move,
And there gathering crumbs from a cake on the floor,
Was a tiny field mouse that had brought five more?
Now they scurried along the carpeted floor,
One eye on the woman and one on the door,
A very big feast they would have when they got back in the wool
Babies snuggling inside the bag as they went home,
Oh look at the little things how much had they grown?
A tiny little field mouse sat licking his paw,
The little old lady did not see him anymore,
The moving thing in the corner was pounding in his ears,
Her eyes were glued to the thing with much light
The mice would feed and sleep on through the night.

A lovely story Fred....Little field mice are so precious, I have had to rescue many from my playful cat and carry it back to the woodland for it's own safety. I'm glad your story had a happy ending too. Like Like a Star @ heaven
