Hi, can anyone help, my late mam used to recite a poem ,the only bit I can remember is
I'll ask Aunt Rose
Have you seen a mouse
With a wobbly nose
Not much to go on, I think she probably learned it at school in the 1920 s, thanks Ruth
I hope this doesn t come on twice,sorry, I forgot to log in the first time ....
Has anybody seen my mouse?
I opened his box for half a minute,
Just to make sure he was really in it,
And while I was looking, he jumped outside!
I tried to catch him, I tried, I tried…
I think he’s somewhere about the house.
Has anyone seen my mouse?
Uncle John, have you seen my mouse?
Just a small sort of mouse, a dear little brown one,
He came from the country, he wasn’t a town one,
So he’ll feel all lonely in a London street;
Why, what could he possibly find to eat?
He must be somewhere. I’ll ask Aunt Rose:
Have you seen my mouse with a woffelly nose?
Oh somewhere about –
He’s just got out…
Hasn’t anybody seen my mouse?
Thats it Ilza !! Thank you SO much, I'm amazed you knew it !! I'm thrilled about it as I longed to see the words...Happy Ruth

It certainly is nice that ilza can find any mis-remembered verse. What's a woffelly nose, anyway?
I couldn't get the bio link to work, so I added an http:
