I came across this poem today while looking for something else on the internet. It was a favorite of mine as a child. I used to have a book of poems that I avidly read in elementary school (and after) that it was in along with a few other favorites.


by Rose Fyleman

I think mice are nice.

Their tails are long
Their faces small,
They haven't any
Chins at all.
Their ears are pink,
Their teeth are white,
They run about
The house at night.
They nibble things
They shouldn't touch
And no one seems
To like them much.
But I think mice
Are nice
