By

   On a moonlit night, dark and drear,

I
opened my window,

But only to hear

A faint meow, soft but
clear ,

OUT IN THE MIDNIGHT AIR



I went
downstairs

Past the living room couch,

And opened my
door

To find my cat in a crouch.

"What is
it?" I asked,

Looking down at my pet ,

SITTING IN
THE MIDNIGHT AIR



He said he saw it -

Big
and black:

Nothing a monster could ever lack;

Out by the
pond,

As scary as can be ,

OUT IN THE MIDNIGHT
AIR



Laughed and laughed

and laughed
did I!

ACause over the pond,

Way up in the
sky

Was a big round moon

Right up in the
sky!

OUT IN THE MIDNIGHT AIR



I laughed
again, with great affection

ACause what he saw was his own reflection
,

IN THE POND, IN THE MIDNIGHT
AIR
