Appley Dapply

Appley Dapply’s Nursery Rhymes

APPLEY DAPPLY, a little brown mouse,
Goes to the cupboard in somebody’s house.

IN somebody’s cupboard
⁠There’s everything nice,
⁠Cake, cheese, jam, biscuits,
⁠—All charming for mice!

APPLEY DAPPLY has little sharp eyes,
And Appley Dapply is so fond of pies!

NOW who is this knocking
⁠at Cottontail’s door?
Tap tappit! Tap tappit!
⁠She’s heard it before?

Charlie Rooster, Johnny Mouse, and Percy the pig are the best of friends. They do “everything” together. They ride their bike together, play games together, and even do their chores together. Because that’s what good friends do. When night falls, though, and it’s time to go to bed, they learn that sometimes friends have to be apart. But that’s okay, because true friends always find each other, even if it’s just in their dreams.

The Cat

by Ogden Nash

You get a wife, you get a house,
Eventually you get a mouse.
You get some words regarding mice,
You get a kitty in a trice.

By two a.m. or thereabouts,
The mouse is in, the cat is out.
It dawns upon you, in your cot,
The mouse is silent, the cat is not.

Instead of kitty, says your spouse,
You should have got another mouse.

Merry Christmas

By Aileen Fisher

I saw on the snow
when I tried my skis
the track of a mouse
beside some trees.

Before he tunneled
to reach his house
he wrote “Merry Christmas”
in white, in mouse.

He played on the flute
‘Til the chief fell asleep
Then took back the fire
For his people to keep
