Aunt Sarah’s Fall from Grace


Time had flown by

Lady and the Tramp’s puppies

Adopted and long gone

They only kept the one – Scamp

Jim Dear and Darling’s

Son Jon now an adventurous five

He and Scamp

Inseparable friends for life

Dear and Darling

Were planning a trip

Their wedding anniversary

Was coming on quick

It was Lady that worried

What would happen when they were gone?

Meanwhile her Tramp

Romped with his son and Jon

Hearing that Aunt Sarah

Was coming

Lady expressed her worries

To both dear Jock and Trusty

Now both dogs were of one mind

She had them nearby

Her faithful and loving Tramp

And her son Scamp

No need to worry

There was no new baby in the house

Aunt Sarah

Just an old lady

The day came

When Jim Dear and Darling were leaving

Sincerely hugging and kissing

Their son Jon

They patted the dogs’ heads

And with happy smiles

And no worries

They were quick to depart

It was then that Lady

Took in the scene

Old Aunt Sarah with an angry frown

Two equally old and grumpy Siamese cats

Lady remembered oh so well

Her fall from grace at Sarah’s hands

She thought of what could have happened

To her Tramp as well

Aunt Sarah settled in

Greatly disappointed with three dogs about

Her cats were spitting and hissing

While Jon held onto dear Scamp

Disappointed and dismayed

Aunt Sarah was indeed

There was no discipline

None at all in this house

That night she put all the dogs out

Lady and Tramp were quite surprised indeed

Their place was in the kitchen

Guarding the house

Scamp would sleep with Jon

But Sarah was having none of this

While her cats lay by the fireplace

She put them all out

Jon cried himself to sleep

So angry at her was he

His friend was outside

Where he shouldn’t be

The following day it began to rain

And Jon sat by the window

Looking out into the yard

As the rain came pouring down


Now Jock and Trusty

Invited Lady, Tramp and Scamp

To come upon Trusty’s front porch

But they refused they had to guard the house

Scamp tried many ways

To sneak in to see his pal

But Aunt Sarah

Had eagle eyes

So angry and upset was little Jon

That when the two Siamese

Sat upon the piano

He knocked down the piano lid and clipped their tails

The meowing and hissing and spitting

Made it sound like a great big fight

Aunt Sarah soothed her darlings

And sent Jon off to his room

It was then that Jon began to think

As much as a five year old can do

He had heard that when home wasn’t home anymore

You left home to find happiness

Now he wasn’t sure what all that meant

But he knew one thing

And that was that home wasn’t home

Because mean old Aunt Sarah was here

He also knew that happiness

Meant being with his mom and dad

Having the company of Scamp

Just added to the fun

So little Jon bravely decided

If nothing else was to be done

He’d take Scamp and go off

To find his mom and dad

While Sarah sat knitting

And the Siamese were sleeping

Jon stole to the window

To see where Scamp was at

Satisfied that he was in the yard

Jon went to see what toys

He could pack

And if he could find his galoshes

It was while Jon

Was reaching deep inside his toy chest

That he tumbled in

And the lid clicked shut

For a moment the boy was dazed

Then he thought

It wouldn’t be long

Before he was missed

So in the semi dark

Where only a single light ray

Came shining in

From a crack Jon waited to be found

It was coming on toward evening

When Aunt Sarah went to see

What Jon was doing

And why he was being such a good boy

She was quite surprised to see

That there was no one about

With angry eyes narrowed

She stormed back out

Surely he was in the yard

With those flea bags

Out in the rain

Where he shouldn’t be

Meanwhile Jon had fallen asleep

With thumb in mouth

He had no idea

Of what was going on

Out into the yard

Did Aunt Sarah march

The dogs all were there

But little Jon was not

Now the old lady

Became quite scared

And once she had searched all about

She called the police

Right away the officers

Were convinced that Jon was a runaway

But it was so odd

That a five year old would not take his dog

When hours went by

And there was no sign of Jon

They suggested Aunt Sarah

Notify Jim Dear and Darling


Thus summoned they hurried on home

While Lady and Tramp

Along with Jock and Trusty

Searched all about

It was Scamp that saved the day

He managed to get into the house

And followed his strong sense of smell

Up he ran to Jon’s room

Now the noise had awoken Jon

And he rubbed his eyes

For a moment he didn’t know where he was

And darkness was all about

Then he remembered his fall

Down into the toy chest

He heard Scamp’s sniffing

And called out to him

Scamp scratched at the chest

And began to bark

All the dogs came running

Followed by the officers

At this time Jim Dear and Darling arrived

The ran past Aunt Sarah

And up to Jon’s room

Where Scamp barked and barked

The officers pried open the lid

And lifted out the disheveled and sleepy eyed Jon

Jim Dear and Darling cried out in glee

And Scamp licked the boy’s little face

Needless to say

It was the last time Aunt Sarah came to stay

Things all ended so very well indeed

And soon Lady and her Tramp had more puppies

My all-time favorite Disney movie. What a classic, and you have only enhanced it and did it great justice with this excellent poem/story. I may have to watch this one again because of your lovely and fun writings.

Great job Gypsy!

So glad to know that this is your favorite and that you enjoyed this Bill. That first pic when Lady and Tramp are eating always made me hungry for spaghetti. One other thing that I love about this movie is that it begins and ends with my favorite holiday - Christmas.

Gypsy, this was another great poem on a famous cartoon. I really enjoy this series and straight up, you do a great job at telling the story. You have that talent that I would rather read your poetry then watching the movie:) You turn a classic and make it your own. Voted up, awesome, and interesting. Shared this on Twitter.

So glad you enjoyed this Faith and thanks for the vote. I remember my promises. Besides there is so much more Disney to conquer that I'm not sure what I'll decide. Might be a nice challenge. God bless.

So good! I loved this because Lady and the Tramp is one of my favorite Walt Disney films. "We are Siamese, if you please; we are Siamese if you don't please." Voted up and well done!
