IT IS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT

Ominous black clouds fly on high
A tin roof glints with pallid light
Animals constantly sigh
And owls sing loudly, mournfully.

A wombat stands in paddock gray
Wishing to hap upon a fight?
But possums run right away
And poison toadstoools in an arbour grow.

No light, shining bright
Man is only a small thing now
It is a dark and stormy night
Look away, look around, go to ground.

Iron posts stand in long, straight rows
Flinging dark shadows upon all things
Sounds of this night a frog knows
And rats go into hiding, just can’t stay.

Black cats run to warm dry nooks
But dogs act oblivious to comfort
And boys know it’s oft’ said in books
that
IT IS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT
