CREATURE OF THE NIGHT

He comes in the dark night

Before the morning light.

Gray is the color of his huge eyes.

He can see as far as the crow flies.

A gorgeous creature of the night.

Much too scary upon first sight.

As I courageously draw near.

He backs away to disappear.

CAN YOU SEE ME NOW?

I am hiding.

I am shy.

I am camouflaged.

No one will ever find me.

Except for maybe the fly,

who insists on buzzing around me.

The sun has spotted my spots

with its rays of sunshine.

The bird is eying me with 

its black eyes.

But otherwise,

I’m safely hidden from sight.

Hidden from humans.

What am I?

Could you tell what I am?

I CAN SEE YOU

All is quiet.

Night is approaching.

I see humans in the distance.

And they have food.

I’m getting hungry.

There’s no hurry.

I’ll just get comfortable

and bide my time.

They will still be there

when I’m ready.

Lick, lick, lick.
