And suddenly the door began to melt against the brass frame

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Big Dreams” by April Halprin Wayland: scruffy, thin, paws, dizzy, mounts, hold, applause, keep, cat, grace, mice, busy

And suddenly the door began to melt
Against the brass frame as she kept still
She held tight and dizzy was what she felt

The cat chased the mice in a busy drill
Their thin paws ran around the house with grace
Against the brass frame as she kept still

Under the mounts the cat stopped its chase
From a distance she could hear some applause
Their thin paws ran around the house with grace

In the squabble things got mixed just because
In scruffy way the cat went for her kill
From a distance she could hear some applause

Up the hill Jack went to fetch his friend Jill
Loud steps coming down the staircase
In scruffy way the cat went for her kill

Down the hill Jack and Jill went for a race
And suddenly the door began to melt
Loud steps coming down the staircase
She held tight and dizzy was what she felt*
