Children's Poems
by Margo Fallis
The Cat and Dog Choir

By the light of the moon three cats climbed on a fence
And sang with all their might,
“Meow! Meow! Hiss, hiss, hiss!” It really was quite a sight.
They played with their whiskers; they licked their fur; they scratched at the biting fleas.
People opened their windows and yelled, “Would you stop all the noise! Please!”

The cats ignored them and sang all night long; they couldn’t stop if they tried.
“This is what cats do,” one meowed out loud; the people shut their windows and sighed.
A group of dogs came running past, searching the rubbish for grub.
“What are you cats doing? What’s all the noise? You’re making quite the hubbub.”

“We’re singing,” one said and licked his fur; “you can say we’re a kitty cat choir.”
“Can we join in?” a blue dog said. “There’s much about you we admire.”
“Climb up on the fence and sit right here, next to me and I’ll teach you how
To sing with us and then I’ll show you how you can hiss and meow.”

One by one the dogs jumped up; unsteadily stood on their paws.
The moon shone down on the flea-riddled group as they hummed, meowed and did a few haws.
After a while, the dogs were fed up. “I’m off to find me a bone.”
One jumped off the fence, the others followed and soon the cats stood there alone.”

They didn’t mind, not that jolly group; their chorus of noise filled the air;
Disturbing the neighbors and waking up babies, but still the cats did not care.
To everyone’s great relief they watched the sun as it rose so high.
The cats disappeared to sleep away the day and the people let out a great sigh.
