The Secret Code Of Beatrix Potter

Three little mice sat down to spin,
Pussy passed by and she peeped in.
What are you at, my fine little men?
Making coats for gentlemen.
Shall I come in and cut off your threads?
Oh, no, Miss Pussy, you'd bite off our heads!

The Tailor of Gloucester, by Beatrix Potter.
