hey, my kitten

According to this page, this short and dear nursery rhyme is only found in two verse collections, one from 1843, the other from 1850. I might be excused then for never having heard it before, but now that I have, it suits me fine. . .

Hey, my kitten, my kitten,
And hey, my kitten, my deary,
Such a sweet pet as this
Was neither far nor neary.

I think I'll change Sweet pet to Sweet Pea and recite this to my little white cat...

What an adorable rhyme.
