Tuesday Poem: Hush

In the sweet of the morning,
would barely fill a palm 
or china cup, is a mouse
curled up asleep in the bread.
Hush, or it will waken and
I'll have to do something.

                      Mary McCallum

The dilemma of a mouse in the house. Note poem revised since first posted.

And today at the Tuesday Poem hub, you can find more mice in a poem by Lindsay Pope – but his narrator is a little less circumspect in dealing with his mouse problem. Lindsay's book Headwinds I published under our Mākaro Press Submarine imprint. It's a marvellous collection and it's great to see Lindsay on TP, thanks to editor Keith Westwater.

Have a lovely day.
