[Illustration: Verse inside the illustration:
Said Tom, “I’ve little time
For luxuries like these;
But get your lantern, Pussy Grey,
And hurry about it, please,
For I’ve found a door ajar,
And I think our chances are
Good for a bit of cheese.”
“Ah, Tom,” cried Pussy Grey,
“I fear you’re a wicked one!
But wait, I’ll light my lantern quick
And put my ulster on!”
The twirl of a furry paw
Was all the firelight saw,
And the thieving friends were gone.
Not the noise of one footfall
Was made by their twice four,
As they sped along in silent stealth
And reached the dairy door.
It was open the merest crack,
And they pushed the hinges back,
And crept along the floor.
From AEsop’s Fables, Versified.]
