Once upon a stormy night
Pitch-dark and shadowy.
I sat beside the firelight
And read a fantasy.

Country mice named Mic and Mac
Resided in a tree.
To the farm of Mister Jack
They traveled happily.

Mick said, “Let’s visit the cow
Her milk is warm and free.
It will satisfy us now
And fill each mouse’s tummy.”

They drank their fill thanked the cow
Then curled up in the straw.
Fast asleep next to the plow
Between the rake and saw.

Morning came the sun arose
The mice crawled out of bed.
They sniffed the ground with their nose
Mack said, “Time to be fed.”

Inside the old house they crept
Looking for tasty crumbs.
They leered at a cat as he slept
He’s awake and here he comes.

Chasing the mice down the stairs
Under a door they run.
The cat awaits full of dares
And sleeps, he thinks he’s won.

Mic and Mac awake all night
Peek from their hiding spot.
Tom is sleeping what a fright
They run before they’re caught.

While the mice search to get out
They meet the missus, squeak!
In a quandary no doubt
She yells, “Tom, I see mice, eek!”

Mic and Mac high tail it home
Days of exploring done.
The only place they will roam
Is on their own front lawn.

A darling poem that I enjoyed with a big smile.

A very sweet poem, feels like a classic nursery rhyme. Sometimes the meter feels a little off (eg. 3rd stanza)

I agree with the comment above - had the feel of a nursery rhyme. Young children would love this cute poem! You might try clapping out the rhythm so you have matching syllable count for matching lines.
