Answer: “The Clever Deer”

Let’s recite the poem:

SOMEONE

Someone came knocking
At my wee, small door;
Someone came knocking,
I’m sure – sure – sure;
I listened, I opened,
I looked to left and right,
But nought there was a – stirring.
In the still, dark night;
Only the busy beetle
Tap Tapping in the wall,
Only from the forest
The screech-owl’s call,
Only the cricket whistling
While the dewdrops fall,
So I know not who can be knocking,
At all, at all, at all.
- Walter De La Mare
