“Is there somebody there?” said the traveller.
Knocking on the big, black door.
And the moonlight shattered the darkness,
And lit up the forest’s floor.
And in the silence the trees swayed slowly.
Their trunks gnarled and old.
Beside the statues stood whispering,
About this man quite foolish but bold.
Inside the house stood ghosts,
Of people that lived there before.
But after the terrible accident,
They could live no more.
The traveller was now in a rage.
He put his hat on his head.
He climbed upon his horse,
“ I came, I waited but you broke your promise,” he said.
The ghostly figures listened.
To the traveller who’d waited a long time.
They also listened to his horse,
Trotting through the forest of pine.

`I am back from my journey where are you?’
Asked the traveller tapping on the moonlit door
And tawittawoo was his answer as an owl soared out the trees.
He rapped on the door a second time and said
‘Where are you?
But all that he heard was a howl,
No one answered to his plea.
No creaking of an opening door.
The 1 thing left to see;
A small light coming from the window.
The 1 thing left to hear;
the crunching of footsteps on stone,
so the traveller tuned to see;
A statue staring back at him,
With eyes made out of gems.
He banged on the door again and said,
'Is there any body there?'
But still there was no one to hear him .
No one to answer the door ,
Except for the 1 thing,
A poltergeist bobbing around but not making a sound.
Then the traveller said,
'Tell them my journey was smooth but was spoiled for you not being in.'
‘You said you would be here’ said the traveller.
Knocking on the wooden shed.
And an owl flew out of the window in the silence of the night.
And he saw the dead leaves lying on the woods weedy floor.
And he heard his foot steps on the gravel as he shuffled up to the door.
All was quite that night
That night he knocked on the door
What he heard that night was the whistling of the wind so cold.
What he could see that night was the old and tattered door.
Then suddenly he shouted,
‘Tell them I came and will return’.
