Dame Trot and her cat

Led a peaceable life,

When they were not troubled

With other folks’ strife.

When Dame had her dinner

Near Pussy would wait,

And was sure to receive

A nice piece from her plate.

A Book of Nursery Rhymes.

Arranged by Charles Welsh.

    1. You are not as old as the book! They reproduced these over the years so you likely remember a much more recent version. Never fear you are never old compared with people 20 years older! If nobody is say 10 years older than you – well, then you have to accept that you are indeed old! Otherwise you could still be somebody’s kid – a mere child!
