Poem 69 - A batty night

Queer noises made me get up from my dear sleep
Now Wide Awake I went to the window
From there I saw a strange castle, steep
Near the tall, new big castle I did go

It seemed to be from Rapunzel's story
Only one arched window and that was all
Through the window just darkness I could see
Again came the noise from the castle, tall

Out from the window came a bat's body
But it seemed to have a small fairy's head
It made the queer noise, flew off suddenly
Through the night's darkness it's own way it led

Castle vanished as strangely as it came
Decided to go home, was I there yet?
The castle left marks, no one took the blame
But that night such a strange thing my eyes met
-Gaurang Rao
