NOT so long ago, as a matter of fact quite recently indeed, I would say, in a modest little home lived Minky and Blinky, a loving pair of adventurers and readers of books. Blinky was strong as an oak tree, rightfully witty and a silly fellow at times. Minky, on the other hand, was dazzlingly delightful, graceful and had an emanating smile of pure joy. And, ah, yes…then there was their exuberant, merry and fluffy cat, Muffinpuff. Adorable Muffinpuff! All three lived in a nestled yellow house on Baldwin Street. A quaint street. Quaint. But Quite.
And so begins…
MUFFINPUFF’S SPRING SURPRISE AND SUMMER NIGHTS!
(Or a collection of exquisite and savoury narratives)
THERE curiously sat a puffy, pudgy bunny upon a smiling green lawn. The rays of the happy sun warmed her furry ears as she napped quite unabashedly.
Lo! Suddenly pricked her ticklish ears! A growing melody beyond the hill!
Closer it did come, with a jovial song to fill any heart with a thrill!
Spring, Spring, sprightly Spring!
Bringing us leaves, flowers, anything!
Kites, honey, and the warm breeze,
Makes us hungry for picnics and cheese!
We wait, we wait
By yonder gate,
To greet our friend with songs to sing!
Spring, Spring, Oh sprightly Spring!
With that, a curious troupe of friends emerged over the hill!
Look! Birds and grasshoppers and bees, their eyes beaming as they pleased!
And there! Minky, and Blinky! Holding hands, joyously at ease.
At the back of the group, along came the plump posture of a tubby cat with the biggest smile of all.
His monocle newly polished, cane swinging with glee,
The top hat resting on his fuzzy head, see!
Mr. Huggles! Mr Huggles! On he went presently!
And there at the front of the crowd
skipped delightful dear Muffinpuff!
Singing with a voice so sweetly loud!
