When late at night there came a knock
before getting up I looked at the clock.
It clearly showed it was well past ten
We weren’t used to getting any callers then
My wife said, “Don’t you open that lock.
You can never tell who it might be,
just go upstairs, from the window you’ll see
if we can then safely open the door
then we will need to worry no more.
While you’re upstairs I will find the key.”
