Perhaps Only Goblins
`Was It someone rapping ‘pon my window
Or was the tapping from far away?
Was it the moon that shone through my window
Or Lucifer's light, as the old women say?
Was it the wind that rattled my window
Or was it the glass keeping Goblins at bay?
Was it the shades that shimmered at my window
Or twas it a trick that my eyes liked to play?
Was it no more than just an ordinary window
Or was it the fearsome nearness
...Of Halloween day? ...
