(Daddy's home!) I welcome rain.
Great, groaning tree bats window pane
And lightning out there sparking wild
Can't light a fear within the child.
Hushed quiet now; that moon outshines
illuminates on profile line.
A face invites with wide-eyed sight
As glowing beam breaks up the night
Grown shadows on the painted wall
Won't steal one wink, no not at all
Nor creaking all about the room
No thief or monster be assumed.
Ears peaking up while floorboards groan
Can't be all bad when Daddy's home.
