At my wee, small door;

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

I could only remember the first line of this wonderful poem which I learned,70 years ago, at school in England. Google supplied the rest. Happy memories have come flooding back. Thank you.

I love this poem, I have never forgotten it from Nursery school when I was 5 & I have just celebrated my 80th birthday, isn’t it strange how we forget what happened yesterday but a poem has stuck in my head since I was about 5 yrs old, beautiful
