Someone Came Knocking

Someone came knocking
At my wee, small door;
Someone came knocking
I’m sure-sure-sure!
I listened, I opened,
I looked to left and right;
But nought there was a-stirring
In the still dark night.

Only the busy beetle
Tap-tapping in the wall,
Only from the forest
The screech-owl’s call,
Only the cricket whistling


While the dewdrops fall,
So I know not who came knocking,
At all, at all, at all!
