The Silent Spinney
What’s that rustling behind me?
Only a cat.
Thank goodness for that,
For I’m afraid of the darkness,
And these tall trees
Are silent and black,
And if ever I get out of here, mate,
I can tell you I’m not coming back.
There’s a dark shadow out in the roadway,
See if there’s someone behind that tree,
For I’m afraid of the darkness
And it might jump out at me.
My sisters are scared stiff of spiders,
My mother is frightened of mice,
But I’m afraid of the darkness,
I’m not coming this way twice.
