Poetry Friday: Hush You Mice!

I love uncovering these nursery rhymes from other lands! Mama Lisa is a great resource. Today's is from Russia and translated by Natalia, with an appearance by Angelina Ballerina.

Hush You Mice!

Mice are dancing in a round,
On a bench a cat is sleeping.
"Hush, you mice, don't make such noise
Or you'll wake up Vaska Cat
Vaska Cat will jump and leap
And will spoil and break your round."
