Doggy in Bed
Black Cat 2


By Josie Whitehead

Rat a Tat-Tat

There’s a knock on our door that goes rat-a-tat-tat.

     It isn’t a donkey and it isn’t the cat.

It isn’t a horse or a tiny wee mouse.

     Oh rat-a-tat-tat – Who’s come to my house?


Rat-a-tat-tat – I can hear it again,

    And it isn’t the wind and it isn’t the rain.

Rat-a-tat-tat – Look!  A shiny red van!

    Oh, I think that you’ve guessed . . . 


             It’s our friendly postman!
