DANGER

AT THE DOOR

By Josie Whitehead

Danger at the Door

A very hungry woodpecker
     Was knocking on a door.
'Tap tap,' he went. 'Tap-tap, tap-tap!'
     And he thought he heard a snore.

'Tap-tap,' he went.  'Open your door!'
     Was that a little squeal?
An insect's voice cried with alarm:
      'Someone wants a meal!'

Another insect's voice then said:
      'Let’s get away from here.
The knocking on our little door
     Means danger, it’s quite clear.'

Two frightened bugs forgot their beds
     And scurried off in fright.
Woodpecker looked round their home
     But no-one  was in sight.
