Mama brings her little girl to a barn
Little kittens are playing with bits of straw

The little one hears a call, one she’s never heard
Escaping from her mother’s grasp
she runs to find who made this wonderful sound

As soon as she turns the corner
a long, kind face reaches down

What is this thing?
It smells and looks more beautiful
than anything the little girl has seen

Two worlds collide
Two nations unite

Mama finds them both
Little girl gazing up into brown eyes
