Miss T

It's a very odd thing--
As odd as can be--
That watever Miss T eats
Turns into Miss T!

Porridge and apples,
Mince, muffins and mutton,
Jam, junket, jumbles--
Not a rap, not a button
It matters. The moment
They're out of her plate,


Though shared by Miss Butcher
And sour Mr. Bate;
Tiny and cheerful,
And neat as can be,
Whatever Miss T eats
Turns into Miss T!


By
Walter De La Mare
