Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
St. Jerome's Cat
St. Jerome in his study kept a great big cat,
It's always in his pictures, with its feet on the mat.
Did he give it milk to drink, in a little dish?
When it came to Fridays, did he give it fish?
If I lost my little cat, I'd be sad without it.
I should ask St. Jeremy what to do about it;
I should ask St. Jeremy, just because of that,
For he's the only saint I know who kept a pussy cat.
