Hopping Love by Jessica Sellick (Highly Commended)

I think that hopping mice
Are really quite nice.
Little mice hopping about.
I like them without a doubt.
Cute things burrowing about
quietly, without a sound,
Where can I see them?
I know!
In the bush!
I’m already there!
And I’m trying not to stare.
But I see one!
How fun!
To see it’s legs,
run, hop, run
I think hopping mice,
are really quite nice!
little mice hopping about,
I love them without a doubt!
