Murray Mouse - Part 3

by Douglas Paul

"Well it's time for your party!" said Timmy Tom's mom.
"You can open your presents and see who they're from.
We can sing 'Happy Birthday' and have lots of fun,
then we'll all play some games 'till your party is done."

"What is THAT?" said Tim's mom as she looked at his lap.
Oh, No!  It's a mouse!  Is he taking a nap? "
"I don't want any mice sleeping here in my house.
Hurry up, Timmy Tom, and get rid of that mouse!"

"It's Murray the Mouse, Mom, and he's really nice.
He doesn't cause trouble like most other mice.
Can he come to my party when he is awake?
'cause he told me he really likes ice cream and cake."

"Well, a mouse that can talk is not normal, my son,
but I guess that would make him a mouse that is fun.
If you promise he won't make a mess in my house,
then I guess there'd be room for a pet who's a mouse."

After Murray woke up, he had ice cream and cake,
while he made friends with Madison, Logan, and Jake.
They all thought that the party was really the best.
And Murray the Mouse was their favorite guest!

When the party was over and friends had all gone,
Timmy Tom felt so tired that he started to yawn.
And he said,"Murray Mouse, I am ready for bed!
So let's go pull the covers up over our heads!"


This is the conclusion of the Murray Mouse story. I may write more adventures for this character - we shall see.

I found a way to include Cookies granddaughter, Madison, and Barbs grandson, Logan, in the story - hope it makes it special for them - could not resist.

This is mostly anapestic meter, but in some cases, the first foot only has two syllables and is read "da-Dum", instead of "da- da-Dum".

Thanks for reading - suggestions for improvement welcome as always.
