Another scary poem tat I did a last-minute alteration for a prompt about a third knock.

A knock upon an old oak door
And one upon the windowpane

A third is struck and struck me more

Though time is sure to wane

A cry within a whistling wind

A voice within a moment’s pause

I know these sounds. They chill my mind

I know these sounds I did not cause


A glimpse so brief beyond the hall

A sight uncertain floating free

As such, the lost return a call

That’s so unmannerly

A shape bereft of mortal form

A fleeting image undefined

The sun today had kept me warm

The moon tonight won’t be so kind


A cold draft ‘neath the old oak door

Or through the unsealed windowpane

A life now lost may make for sure

In death, they’re more again

The knock-to-knock that beckons much

Some presence felt and calling heard

But ne’er did I feel fear as such

‘Til the silence after the third
