THE SQUEAKY DOOR
One day the bedroom door squeaked open. Who was there?
Was it a small mouse, nosing through?
Or the wind blowing down from the mountains?
Maybe papa tucan was looking for apple scraps to bring home for his babies?
"Which apple piece shall I bring?"
"Maybe I can take the whole apple."
Or grandpa gecko, coming to answer a question?
"What do you wish to know?"
Or an earthquake, shaking the earth and the bedroom floor?
"Rattle! Bang! Creak! Squeak! Ch-Ch-ch-ch-ch."
Or perhaps Papa is coming in for a snuggle with two boys.
