THE BOGEY OWL
Child, you must sleep through the night.
Forget your fears, turn out that light!
For those who wander through the house,
Creep up the stairs like homely mouse,
Will find a creature waiting there;
Its habits most peculiar!
The bogey owl has hands to grab,
Wings to soar, its talons stab.
Need I mention that pointy beak?
It will snap if you dare speak.
So little child stay in your bed,
Squish your pillow, hide your head.
If something shrieks in the night,
Close your eyes very tight,
And whisper to the howling winds
Bogey Owl, don’t come in!
