Little Edgar smiled at me
And whispered "Let me in!"
And briefly I considered it,
He looked so pale and thin

But waking more I realized
With ever-dawning horror
He was just outside the window
That was on the second floor!

I took the cross from round my neck
And held it out toward him
He hissed and snarled and vanished
With a face that was so grim

So now I keep the curtains shut
For fear he may come back
And if I hear him one more time,
I think I'll have to pack!
