I think that I shall never spy
A thing so lovely to my eye
As a striped kitten on the lawn...
But wait, I blinked and she was gone!
Oh lovely kitty, where did you go?
I'm looking for you high and low.
Come out, come out, and play with me.
Together we'll have fun, you'll see.
I know lots of games that we can play,
Like Hide the Kitty in the Hay,
Or Chase My Friend Around the Yard.
It's so much of fun, the rules aren't hard.
If Hide and Seek is your cup of tea,
Go right ahead, don't wait on me.
I'll cover my eyes and count to ten
And we will let the fun begin!
Ah, there you are, tabby dear,
I can see your twitching ear
Behind the bumper of the car.
Don't run away, you won't get far.
Through the bushes, up a tree,
Across the roof? You can't fool me!
Now you're on the front porch rail,
Showing me your bushy tail.
Ah, sweet feline, now it's time
To end this fun-filled game of mine.
Here comes My Boy, he has my leash,
So I will leave you now in peace.
Until next time...
