10. When Giant met Mouse

It was a cold summer’s day

 Without a cloud in the sky.

 The wind did not whistle

 Not even a twig did stir

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

Mouse skittered along

 Hidden in the green green grass,

 Camouflaged from danger

 And from the bright shining sun

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

Having met with a friend

 Mouse headed home

 For a relaxing evening

 Reading a book or a poem

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

Before reaching home

 Mouse saw another friend;

 About to call out

 A huge shape loomed above

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

The shape grew bigger

 Cast a shadow

 Of the deepest grey

 Upon minute little Mouse

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

"Stop right there

 I need to talk

 And you will certainly do." the creature,

 Or was it a monster, said

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

Mouse stuttered and spluttered

 Unsure of how to reply

 When the monstrous creature

 Reached to the ground

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

Mouse rose from the ground,

 It seemed he were now on a cliff,

 And that cliff began to rumble and shake

 As the monster moved away

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

"Who are you?"

 Mouse managed to utter.

"I am Giant, the Giant

 Of Calcutta." Giant replied

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

Like a tree trapped in a storm

 The movements thrashed little Mouse about

 And by the time they arrived

 Mouse was much beaten and bruised

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

Mouse looked around

 Absorbing delicacies that met the eye

 But Giant frowned, muttering

 "Too quickly. It goes too quickly."

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

"You wanted to talk" Mouse squeaked

Two and twenty hours later.

"So I did but, oh, it will go

 Too quickly." Giant moaned

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

"I have been deceived

 And tricked, by who

 I do not know."

 Giant rampaged

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

Hours of ranting

And pacing the floor

Did follow this outburst

From Giant to Mouse

On the day that

Giant met Mouse.

 

When Mouse realised

What Giant meant, and

Was planning to do

 Away from the room he hopped

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

"I knew it

 It is as I feared.

 He was too quick

 And has now disappeared." Giant cried

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

But too soon losing hope

 Was Giant's failing

When Mouse returned

With the lost treasure

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

"Saviour, my hero"

 Giant praised.

 "Do stay here

 Don't be dazed" offered Giant

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

"Not too hasty

 Please my friend."

 Were the words of Mouse,

 Still fearing the end

 On the day that

 Giant met Mouse.

 

After much time,

Much pestering from Giant and

Much thought and debate

Mouse made his decision

On the day that

Giant met Mouse.

 

Happy are they,

Living together

Under the sun

The moon and the stars since

The day that

Giant met Mouse.

 

Four and thirty years later

On a warm bright summers day

They are still up there,

Talking continuously since

The day that

Giant met Mouse.
