Too Much Play


Now Kitty was a madcap thing,
Kitty was at play
With everything that she could find,
All the happy day!

Shining scissors, thimble, thread,
Reels, and bits of strings;
Kitty, purring up and down,
Played with everything!

Kitty was sleepy puss,
Curled up on the mat
Tucked her nose between her toes
Such a baby cat!

Kitty wasn't feeling well,
Kitty dear got worse
Bring a doctor, if you please;
Find a clever nurse!

Kitty was an invalid,
So she went to bed;
Doctor felt her furry pulse,
Shook a curly head.

"Too much play,' the doctor said;
"Bad for kittens wee;
Four-and-twenty hours in bed;
Better then sHe'll be!'.
