A Spooky Night?
by Sandra Martyres
Bookmark and Share
 

The night was darker than usual
The winds appeared colder too
The owl hooted from its perch
The atmosphere was very eerie

Sitting alone at home she trembled
Expecting to see a ghost float across
The room as was known to happen
According to her aged grandmother

There was no neighbour close by
To whom she could run for help
So shutting her eyes she just hoped
The night would pass uneventfully

But the owl did not allow her to sleep
It hooted louder from a lower perch
The dog joined the chorus by barking
By which time she hid under the bed

She had lowered the quilt to block
Out the ghosts and the scary sounds
Her ploy worked for the noise stopped
But on awakening a surprise  awaited her

She had actually slept in her own bed
Under a warm quilt with a heating pad
There was nothing unusual around
She had infact just had a bad dream!!
