With her shell-pink nose,
And her upturned toes,
Here our HiDi lies.
Gazing with surprise
Out of yellow eyes,
Where our Mischief lies,
Reading on the grass.
Naughty, naughty lass!
SHOULD be making pies.
Happy little cat!
Happy little maid!
Neither of a rat,
Nor of Life afraid.
Ah! No future time
Half so sweet as this—
Youth and Health and Strength
Need no greater bliss.
