Christina Georgina Rossetti

(5 December 1830 – 29 December 1894 / London)

The City Mouse And The Garden Mouse


The city mouse lives in a house; -
The garden mouse lives in a bower,
He's friendly with the frogs and toads,
And sees the pretty plants in flower.

The city mouse eats bread and cheese; -
The garden mouse eats what he can;
We will not grudge him seeds and stalks,
Poor little timid furry man.
