Ode to a Mouse

You were so cute,
Scurrying across the garage floor,
Hiding from the light.

It was difficult to say goodbye.
In other circumstances I might have kept you
And named you Mickey.

But, if you have friends
they aren't welcome here.
So, we had to be sure you wouldn't invite them.

I'm sorry, Little Mouse.
Your life was so short.
Hope you enjoyed the peanut butter.

Love the poem. Was it orginal?
Taught an English class today who had to write a story using their spelling words and thought of you.

Yes, completely original.

Sometimes I wish someone would give me a list of spelling words to write a story with again. That was fun.
