Sorry for my absense, trouble at the mill, so they say. Back with you now and here is a lovely addition to Kayleigh of Q. from Mary Mapes Dodge

 KAYLEIGH  OF Q

Dobbin's Friend



cat giving kisses to horse



Dobbin has a little friend,
Spotted white and sable;
Every day she goes to him,
In his lonely stable.

Not a mite of dread has she,
Not a thought of danger,
Lightly runs between his hoofs,
Jumps upon his manger,

Lays her soft warm cheek to his,
Purrs her meek "Good-morning!"
Gives the flies that hover near
Such a look of warning.

"Dobbin dear," she sometimes says,
"Feel my winter mittens!
"Nice and warm, you see, and made
Purposely for kittens.

Dobbin dear, such times at home!
Mother has caught a rat!
Brought it home to show to us,
What do you think of that?"

"Dobbin," she whispers, purring still,
"You often get so weary !
Why don't you balk or run away,
And get your freedom dearie?"

Then Dobbin gives his head a toss,
And says: "For shame, Miss Kitty!
If I could do so mean a thing
Twould be a monstrous pity!

"No, no; my master's good and kind!
I'll never vex him - never!"
And pussy, pleased, still rubs his cheek,
And likes him more than ever.

This is the complete version of a wonderful little verse by
MARY MAPES DODGE,
whom you all know I like very much. xxx

I love my sister
I am here on holiday for a few day's and I watch as my sister turns a blank page into something quite wonderful. Yet for all her hard work no body ever leaves a comment. Why is that I wonder? Very strange. with love to all Diddily's friends xxx Toni Butterworth
