The humans were snuggled all warm in their bed,
And felines so spoiled had been very well fed.
When what to their wondering eyes should appear,
But a guest in the garden, a beautiful deer.
He munched and he snacked
On the nice cherry tree
Then turned toward the porch,
The kittens to see.
And then those deer hooves made such a clatter
The felines, so scared all jumped and then scattered.
And they heard the deer say
As he walked back to the woods,
“Merry Christmas small kittens
Now try to be good!”
