    When I was a new kindergarten teacher, on rainy days, my teacher mate would recite would Wouldn't It Be Lovely.
    She has passed away now, but I always think of her and the poem on rainy days.

    I would love to find the poem I learnt as at about the age of 8 I see it daily as I pass a tiny ship in sparkling glass within a delicate crystal cas riding the waves with style and grace? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Best Poem of Rose Fyleman


I think mice

Are rather nice.

There tails are long,

Their faces small,

They haven't any

Chins at all.

Their ears are pink,

Their teeth are white,

They run about

The house at night.

They nibble things

They shouldn`t touch

And no one seems

To like them much

But I think mice

Are Nice
