to warn us that
Death is so very near.
Someone we love very dearly,
shall soon reach Heaven's Gates.
Her wailing and wailiiiiiiing
is ever so frightening!
right through us
Feelings of terror! so, overwhelming.
Cats meowiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing so viciously
But she doesn't mind that does she?
they do keep her company after all.
It isn't a good idea to take a peek
out through our windows
if or when she may pay us an unwelcome visit
although it might only, be cats growling,
making quite a fuss outside our dwellings
But then this lady who wails
and cries like a child in the night
Yes, the Banshee.
now would it?
or one may well regret it
