Ghosts - The Noises In The House - Poem by Paul Warren

I'm sitting in the house all alone
It's quiet and everyone else is gone
Is it the house creaking that I hear
I see a shadow flicker on the edge then disappear

The cat is staring at a corner of the room
And the dog won't settle in the night's gathering gloom
What is the noise that I hear in the refrigerator
I look and see a cupboard door open without an instigator.
