Oscar’s a cat. Timmy’s a boy
Oscar catches butterflies. Timmy catches colds.
One day Oscar caught a beautiful red and yellow butterfly.
“Put that down Oscar!” said Timmy’s Mom.
“Put that down Oscar!” said Timmy.
The red and yellow butterfly said nothing at all, and Oscar said “Miaow.”
Timmy chased Oscar and the butterfly.
He chased them through the flowers. He chased them through the trees.
He chased them through the garden gate. He chased along the stream.
The chased them right into the wet and watery middle of the stream.
Timmy got wet. Oscar got wet. The butterfly got away.
Then Oscar and Timmy came home again.
They dripped along the riverbank. They dripped along the stream.
They dripped around the garden gate. They dripped under the trees.
They dripped all over Mommy’s flowers and dripped inside the house
And dripped and dripped and dripped all the way to bed.
And Timmy caught a cold.
