Background Heading

When the children went to their beds at night,

Some silly mice came from their homes to fight.

    There was somebody else who came silently too.

    Then someone called out “twit-twoo”.

 

There were two giant eyes shining in the dark,

And those two giant eyes soon found their mark.

    The two mice suddenly stopped their fighting

     When Mrs Owl swooped as fast as lightning.
