Joshua James


My cat Joshua James
Can play games—
Puss-in-the-corner
And tag
And beanbag
And ball,
And that’s not all!
He’s magic!
He can purr
So low
You can’t hear.
But you can feel him go
Prrrr, prrrr
Through his fur.
And best of all,
Did you know
That stroking him
In the dark’ll
MAKE HIS FUR
SPARKLE?
