Tale Weaver – #313 – Finding Something Forgotten – February 4th, 2021
The Cat finds his kite
The Cat in the Hat was somewhere brand new
he didn’t know who lived there or lived there with who.
He saw lots of toys and some stuff in the yard
He tried to look inside, curtains made it hard.
He thought that he’d knock on the door that’s bright red
Perhaps they’d know him by the hat on his head
Most people did know him for what he did wear
He was famous to most, though he couldn’t care.
So he walked up the walk and he stood nice and straight
he walked up the steps and he closed the front gate
He didn’t want pets that might live there to leave
Most kids did have pets, or he’d like to believe.
When all of a sudden from up on the roof
A balloon went by flying, then popped with a Poof!
Down to the ground a bright paper did float
He bent down to get it and saw it’s a note.
The note it was written in crayon and pen
Was the writing he noticed from a little boy Ben?
The note was so sweet that the Cat he did cry
Ben had an old kite that the Cat used to fly.
The Cat was so happy to get back his kite
He smiled so big with his teeth white and bright.
So Ben lived in this house that he just stopped by
And now he and Ben watch their kites blow and fly.
