A scary night !

I was alone in the house,

it was middle of the night.

Stayed awake in bed

and then switched off the light.


The novel I was reading

lay closed on my bed,

On a very soft nice pillow

I rested my head.


Total silence was there

except ticking of the clock,

Someone scratched the door,

No, it was not a knock.


I got up from bed quicly

holding a stick in my hand,

Who it could be outside

I could not understand.


With thunder and lightning,

the wind was blowing strong.

To make the situation even worse

heavy rain came along.


I felt someone’s presence

just outside the door,

A faint noise of some kind

I heard it for sure.


I was trembling in fear

but then picking up courage in mind,

Quickly opened the door,

Guess who did I find ?


It was Lulu, our sweet dear cat,

who had been out all day.

Now she came, wet in rain,

where at night will she stay?


I wiped her dry, talked to her,

gave her food plateful.

She kept on meaowing, ate her meal

and then jumped on a stool.


I felt happy, went to bed

switched off the light.

Lulu came, lay by my side,

curled up in utter delight !

Great poem! I have been scared at night before, by strange sounds outside my door. I lay there and listen to hear, but am overtaken by fear. I go to the door, my eyes in a fog, only to realize it is my sweet little dog. I really enjoyed your poem! Voted up! :)
